In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve all witnessed how rapidly the world has changed overnight, forcing countries to close borders in a bid to safeguard the health and wellbeing of their citizens.
Today, even as countries put in place measures to reopen their economies, cross-border travels and restrictions on large gatherings still persist as the fight against coronavirus continues. There is a general consensus that this approach will continue until a treatment or vaccine is available to allow for mass usage across the world.
The safety of our team, members, partners, beneficiaries and the general public is of uttermost importance, therefore, given the international nature of the forum, we have made the necessary decision to postpone Spotlight Nigeria to 2021.
The team will continue to actively work with its partners in serving as a facilitator of business collaborations in this difficult period.
