Every year through its Annual Business Law Conference, the Nigerian Bar Association Section on Business Law (NBA-SBL) provides a platform for stakeholders in the Nigerian business environment to address the issues that affect the business environment and, by extension, businesses operating in it. The conference, since its inception in 2004, has remained a converging point for decision makers in both the public and private sectors, policy formulators, regulators and industry practitioners seeking solutions to the myriad challenges limiting businesses.
This year, the NBA-SBL is returning with the 16th Annual Business Law Conference themed “Recent Developments in the Business Law Environment”. As the theme clearly suggests, the 2022 conference will examine recent developments in the Nigerian business environment vis-a-vis how they have shaped or affected business operations.
The focus will be cross-sectoral, from oil (that has witnessed the birth of a new industry law, divestments by IOCs, a world racing away from oil, and disruptive geo-political tension in Eastern Europe), to finance/tax administration (where the annual amendments to the fiscal legislation through the Finance Act leave businesses scratching their heads), the expanding fintech space that craves for a fit-for-purpose regulation, the Twitter ban that raised the question of Nigeria’s readiness to regulate OTT services, the Startup Bill that seeks to regulate the tech ecosystem, and much more.
From Wednesday, 20th to Friday, 22nd July, 2022, the NBA-SBL is assembling a distinguished faculty of knowledgeable speakers and resource persons from within and outside Nigeria at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel Abuja to dissect these issues and chart the way forward.
