A creative marketing communications and digital media / technology company, ID Africa, has agreed to work with the Capital Market Correspondents Association of Nigeria (CAMCAN) for the staging of the 2021 Annual Workshop.
CAMCAN, the umbrella body for journalists in the print and electronic media that reports activities within the nation’s capital market, will be hosting the workshop with the theme: “Technology as a tool for financial inclusion in Nigeria” on Saturday, December 4, 2021.
In a statement, CAMCAN said the workshop will explore strategies to help reporters increase awareness of the capital market and its possible potentials to aid economic growth.
“Although the capital market provides access to affordable funding for developmental goals, it remains underutilised by organisations in the private and public sectors.” The statement read.
Speaking on the upcoming event, ID Africa’s CEO, Femi Falodun, said his organisation is delighted to work with CAMCAN. “We truly believe that the Association’s efforts to improve the skill and capacity of its members will greatly impact the development of Nigeria’s capital market through storytelling and public enlightenment, and the professional practice of journalism in the country.”
For her part, CAMCAN Chairman, Chinyere Joel-Nwokeoma commended ID Africa for supporting the 2021 Annual CAMCAN Workshop and called on other organisations to follow suit.
In her words; “ID Africa’s partnership with CAMCAN will prove instrumental in advancing our organisation’s goal of spreading awareness of the capital market. This year’s edition of the CAMCAN Workshop will bring together regulators, operators, and company executives to discuss issues affecting the capital market and the economy in general.
“We will also build the capacity of journalists covering the capital market and equip them to carry out their duties more successfully.”
The event, slated to be held at the Orchid Hotels, Lekki, Lagos, on Saturday, December 4, 2021, will draw key players in the capital market, including officials from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Debt Management Office (DMO), and Central Securities Clearing System (CSCS).
