The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is set to showcase achievements so far recorded in the promotion of indigenous content in the telecommunications sector.
The Nigerian Communications Act (NCA) 2003 empowers the NCC to encourage local and foreign investments in the Nigerian communications industry, introduce innovative services and practices as well as promote the participation of Nigerians in the ownership, control and management of communications companies and development of communications manufacturing and supply sectors.
Therefore, the Commission is hosting the second edition of the Nigerian Telecommunications Indigenous Content Expo (NTICE 2023) in Lagos.
Themed: “Harnessing Indigenous Content for Economic Growth: Networking to Boost Investment”, the Commission said it was mobilising stakeholders for a remarkable outing, following a very impressive showing at the maiden edition of the event last year.
In a press statement made available to journalists, the director, public affairs, NCC, Reuben Muoka, averred that NTICE 2023 was being organised in keeping with the extant provisions of the NCA 2003, and to promote the four focus areas of the National Policy on the Promotion and Implementation of Indigenous Contents (NPPIC), in the Telecommunications Sector which are Manufacturing, Service, People as well as Research and Development for innovation in line with the federal government’s drive to diversify the economy.
The NTICE is being coordinated by the Commission’s Nigeria Office for Developing the Indigenous Telecom Sector (NODITS), which superintends over efforts for effective implementation of the NPPIC, Muoka said while revealing that the Expo was open to multisectoral participants, including indigenous telecom operators, manufacturers, regulators, government agencies, policymakers, innovators, industry leaders, startups, other actors in the telecom ecosystem, academia and global experts to showcase their products and services, innovative solutions and new technologies.
He stated that the event has continued to serve as a rare assemblage of stakeholders where diverse thoughts can be shared in contexts that advance utilization of indigenous contents in the nation’s telecommunications industry, while encouraging participants to register before August 22, 2023.
In an interaction with the NCC’s in-house media recently, the executive vice chairman and chief executive officer of the Commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta, reiterated that NTICE is Nigeria’s largest annual indigenous telecoms, tech and startups, manufacturing and innovative event that brings to stakeholders the powerful connections and valuable new relationships that highlights the achievements and vast potentials of a tech-driven digital economy.
The 2023 Expo is billed to project the achievements of indigenous content by the government for the sector and afford participants the platform to showcase their products and services, innovative solutions, and new technologies.
