 MD LADOL delivers keynote speech at GIZ Biannual Symposium in GermanyManaging Director of LADOL, Dr. Amy Jadesimi gave the Key Note Speech at the opening plenary of the GIZ Joint Symposium 2018  Economy & Social Development, in Bad Neuenahr, Germany on 11th September 2018. During her speech she highlighted the fact that the global turmoil and search for new operating models is an ideal time for sustainable business models and public sector policies to flourish. There have never been as many educated, healthy connected people in the world as there are now and we have definitive evidence that sustainable operating models will outcompete all others. She encouraged the 800 people in the audience to be optimistic and use this time to support and enable sustainable private sector companies in low income, high growth countries to flourish. This will lead to massive job creation and attract the trillions of dollars needed to help us meet the United Nations 17 global goals and 169 targets. About GIZ Symposium800 participants – colleagues from Germany and abroad, commissioning partners and guests from different backgrounds of business, politics and civil society gathered in Bad Neuenahr to consider the main theme of ‘Globalisation Revisited’. About GIZThe Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH or GIZ in short (English: German Corporation for International Cooperation GmbH) is a German development agency headquartered in Bonn and Eschborn that provides services in the field of international development cooperation. GIZ mainly implements technical cooperation projects of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), its main commissioning party, although it also works with the private sector and other national and supranational government organizations (but usually not with non-governmental organizations) on a public benefit basis. In its activities GIZ seeks to follow the paradigm of sustainable development, which aims at balancing economic development with social inclusion and environmental protection. GIZ offers consulting and capacity building services in a wide range of areas, including management consulting, rural development, sustainable infrastructure, security and peace-building, social development, governance and democracy, environment and climate change, and economic development and employment. GIZ was established on January 1, 2011, through the merger of three German international development organizations: the Deutscher Entwicklungsdienst (DED), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ), and Internationale Weiterbildung und Entwicklung (InWEnt). GIZ is one of the world's largest development agencies, with a business volume in excess of €2.4 billion in 2016 as well as 19,506 employees spread over more than 120 countries. Additionally, in cooperation with the German Federal Employment Agency, GIZ operates the Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM), an agency specialized on international cooperation activities related to global labour mobility.  About LADOLLADOL, is the largest private indigenous free zone in Nigeria and a strategic special economic zone, built in a secure island, inside the Port of Lagos. LADOL has proven it is the ideal location in which to execute the largest global industrial projects. Local and international companies can engineer, manufacturer and train in this safe sustainable ecosystem. LADOL  will create 50,000 direct and indirect jobs across a range of industries. Having halved the cost of petroleum sector service provision and positively disrupted this sector, the developers are focused on attracting non-petroleum sector companies into the Zone, starting with agriculture and technology.The post MD LADOL delivers keynote speech at GIZ Biannual Symposium in Germany appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
