The Conference with the theme: “On-boarding Small and Medium Scale Enterprises into Micro Insurance and Pension Space in Nigeria will hold at Oriental Hotel, Lekki, Lagos on November 3, 2022
The event will feature the unveiling of NAIPCO New Name and Logo to stakeholders in both sectors of the economy
Speaking on the conference, Chairperson of NAIPCO, Mrs Nkechi Naeche-Esezobor, noted that the theme of the conference is apt as the SMEs sector has been the main driver and engine of growth of the Nigerian economy, and being the sector with the highest employers of labour, needs all the support to enable it continue to contribute significantly to the economy.
“Incidentally, the larger population of operators and employees in this space are left unattended to, with a lot of them not benefiting at all from the nation’s financial inclusion project, and this therefore underscores why the micro-insurance and micro-pensions players should see this group as a growth asset,” Nkechi added.
According to her, “Experts, stakeholders and the general public will converge on the conference to proffer solutions on the way forward”.
