In support of the Federal Government's efforts to alleviate the effects of COVID-19 in Nigeria, the Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC) has donated the sum of N4,000,000 (Four Million Naira) to the Relief Fund. The sum was realised through donations from some member companies and individuals responding to the NBCC COVID-19 Relief Campaign.
The President and Chairman of the Council, Kayode Falowo stated that:
"As a Chamber of Commerce, we recognise the positive impact of the private sector as a partner to government and the strength of a coordinated and collective approach in working together towards addressing this pandemic. We commend the Federal Government's efforts and look forward to the resumption of economic activities as soon as possible."
Furthermore, the NBCC will be hosting a virtual Roundtable discussion to help organisations navigate through the uncertainty that the pandemic presents. The Roundtable will articulate the challenges, the current and future impact of COVID-19 on business and the economy at large. Recommendations from the Roundtable will be passed to the appropriate agencies of Government for consideration and action.
