The 22nd annual conference of the African Securities Exchanges Association (ASEA) scheduled to hold from November 25 to 27, 2018, would be hosted by the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE).
The event will take place at the Oriental Hotel in Lagos. The last time the NSE hosted this same conference was in 2009 and it was held in 2009.
It will also be recalled that NSE successfully hosted the 5th Building African Financial Markets (BAFM) seminar from April 28 to 29, 2016. It was the first time the capacity building seminar would be hosted outside of South Africa.
This year’s ASEA is themed ‘Champions on the Rise: Africa’s Ascension to a More Sustainable Future’ and has a robust agenda and an impressive array of thought leaders as speakers.
The two-day conference will feature keynote addresses and presentations, panel discussions and interactive sessions on burning issues around Africa’s global competitiveness, emerging technologies and inclusive growth, within the broader perspectives of sustainability. It will also provide a platform for networking and business opportunities.
Chief executive of NSE and ASEA President, Mr Oscar Onyema, stated that, “The ASEA conference will continue to be a major platform of cooperation for the African business community.
“The conference will provide a great opportunity for investors, policy makers, government, leaders of African exchanges, media and other market stakeholders to network, share valuable experiences, as well as discuss the future development of financial markets in Africa, with the goal of mapping a route to a sustainable future for the African economy.
“About 1,000 delegates are expected at the event which is considered one of the most important financial conferences of the continent due to its attraction to eminent thought leaders, important decision makers and investors interested in the African market.”
“We will leverage the opportunity to reinforce the position of The Nigerian Stock Exchange as a sophisticated bourse, energize the Nigerian capital market eco-system, and showcase Nigeria as an attractive tourism destination amongst others,” added Mr Onyema.
The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
