Vice President Kashim Shettima has departed Abuja for the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
In a statement, the Vice President’s spokesman, Stanley Nkwocha, says the Vice President will join other political and business leaders across the world at the annual Forum to discuss global socio-economic and development issues.
Apart from the plenary session, the Vice President is expected to launch the Private Sector Action Plan for the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCTA) at a special session to be co-chaired by him.
Vice President Shettima is also billed to hold high-level discussions with the Managing Director of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), Makhtar Diop, and the Prime Minister of Vietnam, Pham Minh Chinh, among others.
Before his return to Nigeria after the week-long event, the VP will chair a roundtable dialogue on Nigeria’s economic path. He will also attend a special session dedicated to building trust in the global energy transition programme.
