Falowo noted that with the current slow state of affairs in the global economy, Nigeria inclusive, the Chambers was under no illusion about the tough agenda it had set, but he was optimistic that with determination and the zeal members had shown in the past, the set goals will be met. Falowo said “As you all know, a good plan is as good as the ability to implement it. Therefore, I appeal to all members to join in the effort of repositioning NBCC as the reference institution for bilateral trade”.
