THE 12TH NIGERIAN DREDGING SUMMIT, EXHIBITION AND TOURS,

ROCKVIEW HOTEL ABUJA.


NOMINATION OF DELEGATES TO THE 12TH NIGERIAN DREDGING SUMMIT AND EXHIBITION, ABUJA 2018

THEME: “RE-POSITIONING NIGERIAN PORTS INDUSTRY THRO DREDGING, ICDs, ENVIRONMENTAL PORT STATE AND SMART CUSTOMS PROCEDURES”

Nigerian seaport operations have made tremendous strides in recent years although the main challenge now includes adaptations for pre-eminence amongst rival West Africa ports. Since 2017, problems arising from traffic gridlock at Apapa, the major port gateway city of Nigeria, have beset the promising future of Nigeria’s maritime trade. If not well-handled, this could truncate the natural position of our ports, in the long-run, as the preferred ports for the huge Nigerian market, in favour of competitors such as ports in Cotonou, Lome, Tema and Abidjan.
This problem is the theme of the 12th Nigerian Dredging Summit and Exhibition which is slated to hold as follows:

VENUE: ROCKVIEW HOTEL ROYALE, ABUJA
DATE: SEPTEMBER 24-28, 2018
TIME: 9 AM – 4 PM

Keynote speakers include the Hon. Minister of Transportation, the MD, NPA; the DG, NIMASA; the ES, Nigerian Shippers Council; the CG, Nigerian Customs Service; the President/CE, Dangote Group; and the Chairman, Sea Terminals Operators Association of Nigeria.

The Federal Government’s renewed focus on agriculture as a foreign exchange earner has led to phenomenal re-discovery of food production and cash cropping for export. Indeed Nigeria’s export profile has increased substantially, adding to the national cargo throughput at the ports. Coupled with the steady increase in throughput of other items of international trade, the port industry ought to be in jubilant mode. However, the woes from difficulties in haulage and vehicular movement in Apapa leave a sour taste in the mouth. It is now a challenge for transportation experts on the best methods to manage this aspect of Nigeria’s shipping and maritime success.

The 12th Nigerian Dredging Summit and Exhibition will convene the stakeholders and the right chief executives and experienced resource persons to deliberate on these burning issues, including solutions to the menace of Apapa traffic gridlock in the short-term and long-term. It will also deliberate on other requisite conditions for positively re-positioning the Nigerian Ports for the future competition amongst ports in the West African region. These requisites include effective dredging campaigns to keep national ports in perfect clip for ship calls of all sizes; the evacuation of cargoes from the ports through seamless rail and road networks to inland container depots (ICDs), where customs examinations and cargo clearance can take place; the regulation of up-to-date port-state and flag-state control guidelines for all ports and terminal operators in the Nigerian jurisdiction; and, the upgrading of customs procedures using computerization, the information super-highway and the latest digital and smart applications to consummate the Federal Government’s Ease-of-Doing-Business campaign in our maritime trade.

Tour to Lower Usman Dam and Gurara Dam
In line with the usual programme of activities to let our delegates gain new experiences about the Nigerian countryside, including the diverse geographical characteristics and natural endowments, we shall arrange a day trip to the Lower Usman Dam and the Gurara Dam as part of the 12th Nigerian Dredging Summit and Exhibition. As you know, the dredging of dams to solve siltation is an aspect of the general business portfolio of the dredging industry. Thus, delegates from the maritime and other sectors can have another experience of this associated sub-sector of the larger industry.

THE 12TH NIGERIAN DREDGING SUMMIT, EXHIBITION AND AWARDS, ABUJA 2018.
BRIEF PROFILE OF THE INDUSTRY AND PARTICIPATION DETAILS.

Dredging the river ports and inland waterways of Nigeria remain the key procedures for tapping their economic advantages to the fullest. Aside from the turnkey dredging programmes being maintained by the joint venture partners in Lagos and Bonny, the Federal Government is also interested in establishing a credible regime of targeted dredging for the Escravos River and Calabar River. The River Benue is being discussed for a dredging campaign to facilitate inland water transportation. The private sector is embarking on large-scale dredging campaigns at Lekki, Badagry and Ibom to create various sizes of deep-sea and deep-water ports, with the collaboration of the NPA. Thus, the dredging industry is sure to be germane for Nigeria’s sea trade and cabotage industry for the foreseeable future. Staff of the organizations involved in this industry, either as operators, regulators or sundry stakeholders will always benefit from their participation in these events which enable them to practically interrogate their day-to-day duties with a view to better performance.
Similarly, sand mining from rivers, streams, natural and man-made lakes continue to supply the nation millions of cubic metres of sharp sand annually for road construction, real estate development, beach replenishment and even remediation of oil spills, etc. This is another important sub-sector of the dredging industry whose products and services cannot be over-emphasized. What are the aggregate business opportunities in this sector and in what direction of growth is the industry going? Moreover, the environmental precautions for these beneficial activities must be keenly observed if maximal potentials would be reaped for the nation in the long-run. In view of the challenges of Nigeria’s emerging economy, how do dredging operators observe environmentally-sound methods of operations or how do they comply with extant environmental laws? These are some of the questions resource persons and paper presenters at the 12th Nigerian Dredging Summit will tackle.
EXHIBITION GALLERY / SUMMIT COLOUR BROCHURE
As usual, there will be opportunities for equipment vendors and service providers to show off their wares via an Exhibition gallery. Another marketing avenue during the occasion is the Summit colour Brochure where adverts can be placed. This Brochure which is distributed free of charge to all participants holds useful information and contact details of participating companies, regulatory agencies and other service providers which could come in handy when they go back to their stations.

REASONS FOR THE NIGERIAN DREDGING SUMMIT.
1. Dredging is fast becoming one of the emergent industries in Nigeria for accomplishing projects belonging to federal, state and local governments, as well as serving the various needs of oil field operating companies. It is also now becoming useful for private sector real estate development through the demand for sand. Since the 1960s and even before then, the needs for capital and maintenance dredging for harbors have kept many dredging firms constantly busy. Many startup Nigerian firms have joined the ranks of foreign dredging contractors, so that dredging in Nigeria today has come to stay and is now widening in scope.
2. In view of foregoing, there is an increasing need for best practices to be instituted for the guidance of all: the users of dredging services, dredging contractors and operators, consultants and various service providers and client. Especially for new entrants into the sector there is the need for circulation of adequate knowledge and information about rules and regulations and technical know-how to improve the industry from time to time.
3. In addition to addressing foregoing issues, the Nigerian Dredging Summit has also been effective as a marketing arena for dredging and dredge equipment makers and vendors and a place for interaction between environmental engineers, consultants, academics and governmental regulatory agencies for the exchange of ideas and meaningful debates of existing policies.
4. An umbrella association of serious dredging stakeholders will be unfolded at this year’s summit, exhibition and awards.
5. A longer list of invitees, including many of the riverine states have been invited to the 6th Nigerian Dredging Summit for the purposes of fast-tracking the adoption of proactive measures for enhanced usage of marine transportation to solve urban transport problems.

BENEFITS OF ATTENDING…
1. Local and international exposure for all participants.
2. Up to 10 or more staff of each participating organization can be accommodated to experience the interaction, exposure and training that comes with the event.
3. Staff morale is usually boosted by involving them in this event and they return to their desks more motivated and enlightened to deliver quality service and performance at their jobs.
4. Each participating organization will have the opportunity of addressing the delegates on the various statutory mandates of their establishments and new developments and thus promote the implementation of government or company policies needed to achieve governmental budgetary or corporate aspirations.
5. Board members of the participating agencies or organizations can attend if they want.
Interaction with professionals in the dredging sector will likely yield possible future collaboration between the public and the private sectors in various areas of the economy.

Editorial

How will the Dredging Industry fare during the Economic Downturn?

The dominant trend in today’s world is the global economic challenges of tumbling crude oil prices. For mono-crop economies such as Nigeria, the prescription seems to be unanimous that agriculture and the solid mineral sector offer the best promises for diversification. However, how will the dredging industry fare under such uncertain scenarios?
There is no gainsaying the fact that some trends of economic growth and expansion arising from population explosion will continue to benefit states like Lagos and neighbouring Ogun state, because of the former’s status as a megacity and the biggest maritime gateway for Nigeria. The latter is a beneficiary of the spillover effect of the enlargement of the Lagos megalopolis. Read More...
