Pursuant to the commitment of the Federal Government and the United Nations (UN) to sustainable development, the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Lagos and the Raw Materials Research and Development Council (RMRDC), will tomorrow, organise a private sector engagement workshop on Sustainable Industrial Development in Nigeria.

The workshop seeks to engage the organised private sector (OPS) in discussing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a view to stimulating strategic alignment between private sector business plans and the SDGs.

The workshop, which contributes to Goal 9: “Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation”, is to be addressed by the Senior Special Adviser to the President on SDGs, Mrs. Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire and the Resident Coordinator of the UN System in Nigeria, Fatma Samoura, at the Conference Hall of Manufacturers’ Association of Nigeria (MAN) House, 77, Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikeja, Lagos.
