We’re satisfied with outcome of workshop, says Signal Alliance boss

Signal Alliance has expressed satisfaction with the outcome of the company’s 2015 Customer Week workshop in Lagos organized in conjunction with CISCO, reports ITRealms.
In a chat with ITRealms, the CEO, Mrs Adanma Onuegbu, declared “We’re quite satisfied with the outcome of the conversations that took place, considering the challenge the Nigeria economy is currently facing due to fall in global oil prices, exchange rate collapse, and uncertainty surrounding the elections. This is compounded by the fact that Nigeria is largely an import-based and a mono-product economy.”
 At the workshop organized by the company to design a technology roadmap for Nigeria, experts identified technology as one of the key components in the diversification of the Nigeria economy.
The participant and panelist  agreed that all stakeholders should work together to do the following; Build an ecosystems that will support start-ups from setting up investment  institutions from seed funding to technology backed private equity, and promoting incubators and accelerators; deepening government structures that supports indigenous technology  like the Federal Ministry of Communication Technology, NITDA, SMEDAN, etc; Encourage consumption of local technology  through strict implementation of the local content law; and standardization of local technology products to enable them compete internationally. 
The workshop which theme was ‘Diversification & Innovation: A technology roadmap to grow Nigeria economy’ was attended by business leaders in the public and private sectors, technology leaders & entrepreneurs, and media
