Dana Air has entered into an agreement with the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) to fly delegates to the 25th Nigerian Economic Summit (NES) holding in Abuja, October 7-8.
Spokesman for the airline, Mr. Kingsley Ezenwa, said in a statement that the airline will provide complimentary tickets and a special discount to guests and delegates to facilitate their transportation to the summit.
“As an anniversary event; NES #25 is unique because it marks a major milestone in our history of productive, robust and impactful public-private dialogues.
“Therefore, it is not just an opportunity to assess our progress and impact but, even more importantly, to project into the future,” said Ezenwa.
The theme for Summit is ‘Nigeria 2050: Shifting Gears.’
Its focus “is to set a new agenda for Nigeria as we usher in the next industrial revolution and mark a critical strategic shift to a competitive private sector economy by 2050.”
President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to declare the event open.
There will be main plenary sessions, parallel breakout sessions, industry breakfast meetings, the annual start-up pitching and venture networking session as well as other activities to mark the Silver Jubilee.
