The Organised Private Sector and Nigerian banks have said they will address critical areas of concerns and strategise to create sustainable synergy between the financial services sector and other businesses.
A statement said at the first national stakeholders’ conference on synergy between the Nigerian banking industry and the Organised Private Sector, top financiers; economic experts and industry chieftains would proffer lasting solutions to the constant discord between the banking industry and the OPS.
It said the conference is being organised by the Association of Corporate Affairs Managers of Banks, the banking industry corporate communications and reputation management group.
Speaking at a pre-event media briefing in Lagos, President, the Association of Corporate Affairs Managers of Banks, Mr Rasheed Bolarinwa, said the Nigerian economy would be the major beneficiary of the conference as far-reaching strategies would be taken to tap into the nascent economic benefits through the expected synergy.
According to him, the conference would bring together the best players on both sides to act as think tank for the nation’s macro-economic growth.
Bolarinwa said, “The Organised Private Sector is a valued stakeholder of the banking industry. Both the banking industry and the Organised Private Sector play major roles in growing the economy.
“The need for the two sectors to work closely cannot be overemphasised. ACAMB is therefore reaching out to secure the participation of relevant speakers at the conference.”
