Towards ensuring food security, the Lagos State Government has expressed its desire to explore the agricultural value chain potentials in the state, thus, organising the Lagos Food Security Summit and Exhibition.
Addressing journalists at a press conference, the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Food Security, Mr. Sanni Okanlawon, said the summit was organised with the view to institutionalising a food security framework that would guarantee sustainable food security for her growing population.
Okanlawon added that the summit is expected to provide a veritable platform for discourse on various investment opportunities in agriculture and agro-allied business in the state with the aim of stimulating private investment in the sector and ultimately optimize its vast agro-processing and agro-allied potentials.
The summit with the theme: “Actualising Sustainable Food Security in Lagos State: A New, Comprehensive Agenda” is scheduled to hold at the Airport Hotel, Ikeja from Thursday 10th to Friday 11th November, 2016.
The Summit will also feature exhibition where organisations in agro-allied business can showcase their products and services and maximise branding mileage with international best practices.
