CWC Group launches NCI a Nigerian Company

The CWC Group, experts in energy and infrastructure, is pleased to announce that they have established a Nigerian Company based in Lagos – Nigeria CWC Investments (NCI).

NCI, will look after CWC’s operations in Nigeria including Conferences, Exhibitions and School for Energy courses.

Nigeria Content has always been a priority for CWC. Having held ten editions of the Nigeria Oil & Gas (NOG), described by H.E. Goodluck Jonathan, President for the Federal Republic as “the most prestigious assemblages of experts and investors interested in the Nigerian oil business and its environment”, following industry needs and expanding into the infrastructure and technology industries (annual Nigeria Infrastructure and Nigeria Tech) as well as hosting telecoms events, it was a natural progression to open a local office.

CWC operations in Nigeria have had the unprecedented support of the Nigerian Government. Our work is always carried out in consultation with the Nigerian stakeholders including the Ministries, State Companies, NGOs and Nigerian industry experts. CWC has made a point of using Nigerian contractors wherever possible, before, during and after our events. The company print their materials in Nigeria, use local companies, transport and software suppliers and advertise in the Nigerian press and radio.

CWC is also a member of the Nigerian Business Coalition Against AIDS (NIBUCAA). An important initiative, launched in 2003 by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It encourages and supports the business community to use their core competences and resources to address HIV/AIDS by establishing and implementing workplace and community-based prevention education, care and support programmes.

“We are very proud of our work in Nigeria and look forward to being a part of the exciting times ahead,” says Scott Shelton of CWC Group Ltd. Shelton adds: “Given our long history of working in Nigeria and our extensive key contacts we are certain NCI will grow from strength to strength and develop further projects and opportunities.”
