According to the organizers, a press statement from the Indian High Commission in the country and signed by the Head, Chancery, Mr. Raj Kumar, underscored the importance of the delegation’s visit which depicts Nigeria as high-profile in telecommunications market.

“We are pleased to inform you that Telecom Equipment and Services Export Promotion Council, Government of India will be bringing a high-level telecom trade delegation for exclusively promoting telecommunications and related services from India to Lagos from 1st to 3rd June, 2010,” he said, stressing that the delegation would be participating in the 10th West African International Telecommunications Exhibition and Conference.

“This delegation represents a very major area of focus of our bilateral trade and economic relations which will eventually lead to a mutual beneficial cooperation,” Mr. Kumar said.

Validating this development, the Editor-in-Chief of IT & Telecom Digest, sole Nigeria agent for the show, Mr. Mkpe Abang, said the delegation has since booked several a very impressive and sizeable space, which will serve as a pavilion specifically for their members to exhibit during the expo.

“I am pleased to confirm that the TEPC of India, has indeed booked a very impressive space to exhibit at this year’s W.Afri.Tel; and it is quite clear that the Indians mean business by making this visit at such an opportune moment, to exhibit in West Africa’s premier ICT show,” Abang declared.
