A new date has been fixed for the 2016 edition of the WorldStage Economic Summit (WES) earlier slated to take place in Lagos from September 7-8.
Organisers of the event, in a statement, said the new day is November 16-17, 2016 and that it would hold at the Lagoon Restaurant, Ozumba Mbadiwe, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The programme is themed ‘Addressing the Unemployment Crisis in Nigeria’.
The summit, according to the organisers, was postponed after consultations with relevant stakeholders in view of the challenges facing the Nigerian economy.
“We still see this summit as an opportunity to proffer solution to the current economic challenges and this new date will allow all stakeholders adequate time to fulfil their obligations and preparation for a successful event,” the statement said.
