HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS YEAR'S SUMMIT...

The 3rd Nigerian dredging summit titled The Environment of Dredging” will take place in Abuja on September 16 and 17, 2009. The venue is Rockview Hotel, Wuse II, Abuja.

The Summit’s main goal is to encourage discourse on current dredging and related issues; to generate and manage dialogue, interaction, enlightenment and information about developing trends locally and globally; and, to serve as a marketplace for goods and services providers.

THE ROLE OF THE PUBLIC SECTOR.
A major addition to this year’s summit is the special invitation extended to federal and state government ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) and their anticipated participation, especially those that have to do with dredging and water resources management and the relevant committees of the National Assembly in this regard. With the imminent commencement of the multibillion Naira River Niger Dredging project, the timing cannot be more auspicious.

Therefore, we expect participation of MDAs via attendance of the sessions, lectures, speeches and poster presentations. Private sector organizations and firms involved in dredging and related activities are also encouraged to attend and participate so as to further the sharing of knowledge, information and beneficial interaction amongst public policy makers and implementers and private sector concerns.
