Alaghodaro to you all;
The Edo State Investment Summit (Alaghodaro) is an initiative of the Edo State Government aimed at promoting innovation and boosting economic productivity in the state through collaboration with the private sector.
It is in line with the vision of the Godwin Obaseki-led administration to build “a modern and progressive Edo state where every citizen is empowered with opportunity to live life in its fullness.”
This maiden edition themed “Envisioning the Future” will bring together top Nigerian and International business leaders, investors, bankers, industry experts, policymakers and the academia to set the agenda for development.
It will showcase how Edo State intends to partner with the private sector to leverage the state’s competitive advantage in different sectors for sustainable economic growth.
Key areas of focus include Institutional Reform, Economic Development, Social Welfare, Environmental Sustainability, and Art, Culture & Tourism.
The 3-day summit is designed to foster knowledge sharing, build relationships, spark innovation and inspire commitment to strategic deployment of capital for greater socio-economic and environmental impact.
Alaghodaro 2017 coincides with the first year anniversary celebration of Governor Godwin Obaseki, and it is scheduled to hold from November 10 – 12 at Edo Hotels, Okada Avenue, Benin City.
We look forward to welcoming you to Edo – The Heartbeat of the Nation.

_Envisioning the Future…Without Oil_
Oil has been the driving force of our economy both at the national and state level. The real challenge for us as a people is not necessarily what happens now, but what happens when the oil wells dry up and we can no longer generate foreign exchange from the sale of oil.
The Edo State Investment Summit (Alaghodaro) is the response of the government of Edo State to this challenge. We understand that to ensure a sustainable future for our children we must take deliberate action today towards developing the non-oil sectors and diversifying our economy.
Alaghodaro was conceived to promote innovation and boost economic productivity. It will explore Edo’s competitive advantage across several industries and highlight opportunities for local and foreign direct investments (FDI), as well as facilitate job-creating business investment into the state.
It is my pleasure, therefore, to invite you to participate at the maiden Edo State Investment Summit scheduled to hold from November 10 – 12, 2017 at Edo Hotels, Okada Avenue, Benin City.
Once again Alaghodaro to the good people of Edo State.
Governor Godwin Obaseki,
Edo State, Nigeria.
