All is set for the 2017 review of the nation’s economic outlook by the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) in Lagos on Thursday.
Details obtained from the body’s website said the Economic Review & Business Outlook Seminar will among other things, explore the dynamics in the recessionary and recovering Nigerian economy and strategize for the future.
