The Lagos State Government will host the maiden edition of the National Transport Technology Conference and Exhibition (NTTCE) on June 7th and 8th, 2022 at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, disclosed this at a media briefing in Ikeja yesterday, adding that the two-day event organised by the Nigeria Transport Commissioners Forum, will feature transport technology and investment opportunities in line with global best practices.
He stated that key decision-makers, experts and operators in the road, rail, water and air transport sectors will be in attendance to discuss the current and emerging trends in the smart transportation infrastructure to adopt and implement the emerging trends in the Nigerian transportation space.
Oladeinde noted that deliberations would also be geared towards improving the efficiency and sustainability of transport technology solutions in Nigeria, adding that other topical issues will be clearly highlighted including traffic congestion, parking problems and environmental pollution, which will be critically analysed at the event.
Meanwhile, he expressed optimism that assembling the nation’s Transport Commissioners will also provide a better avenue for seamless implementation of resolutions reached at the summit.
Leading manufacturers and providers of transport technology solutions have been encouraged to showcase their latest future-proved transport technology solutions at the first-of-its-kind transport fair, in addition to a gala and industry award night to wrap up the two-day event.
Also speaking, the Executive Secretary, Nigeria Transportation Commissioners Forum, Mrs. Chinwe Uwaegbute, revealed that Lagos was chosen as the host State for the maiden edition of the NTTCE because of its well-structured strategic transport policies and management, which placed her ahead of other States.
Describing transportation as a hub required for strategic positioning via seamless integration of land, air, rail and water transport modes for economic growth, she posited that the Conference is well planned to achieve lofty objectives for the nation’s transport sector.
According to her, the event wouldn’t be a regular talk-shop, but provide tech-based solutions to the numerous challenges plaguing Nigeria’s transport system.
