NLPGA set to host Nigeria and Africa at its 11th International Conference and Exhibition (2nd Virtual Edition)
The Nigeria Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association (NLPGA) will host its 11th Annual LPG International Conference, on Thursday, November 25, 2021. This year’s edition, which will be the second to be hosted virtually, in alignment with social distancing precautions because of the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic. The conference is themed ‘Market Growth & Fiscal Regulations: Rethinking the LPG Supply Gaps Amid the Challenging Regulatory Environment.’
The discourse will focus on interrogating industry issues, proffering actionable and measurable solutions towards achieving an accelerated economic recovery, with gas as a pivotal enabler.
The conference will converge globally acclaimed thought leaders, critical decision-makers, and stakeholders in the LPG markets across Nigeria and Africa, in both the private and the public sectors.
Speaking during the announcement of the virtual international conference, Nuhu Yakubu, President, Nigeria Liquified Petroleum Gas Association (NLPGA) stated that the conference’s aim is crucial to the overarching recovery-led goal of the economic policies of government in Africa and Nigeria in particular, following the recent challenges faced by the LPG sector.
“According to him, ‘it is the response of every forward-thinking organization to identify actions and amplify sector-driven solutions towards improving the economy. This year’s theme, topics of discussion, speakers, and panelists were painstakingly selected to provide diverse, yet specific solutions targeted at improving operating capacity in the LPG sector.”
In line with the 7th Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), deepening the education on the role of diverse uses of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is critical as the world aims to provide cleaner, reliable, sustainable and affordable energy sources for everyone by 2030. Despite the rising price of LPG, the overarching benefits of LPG for households and industries as a critical enabler cannot be overemphasized. Also, it is not far-fetched to state therefore that sustaining the growing adoption of LPG through policies and programs will advertently sustain economic growth through job and wealth creation.”
Riding on the declaration of the Decade of Gas, by the Honorable Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, the LPG sector aligns as an industry with this executive posturing to galvanize the entire LPG value chain to drive a groundswell adoption of LPG in spurring growth and improving the wellbeing of households across Nigeria.
