”The event will bring together aviation professionals and stakeholders who will network, source their products requirements and create over 50 billion dollars’ worth of business possibilities.

“It also targets to chart a sustainable path and, brainstorm on preventive strategy for the aviation sector.”

Nwosu said that the programme was also aimed at solving the numerous problems confronting the aviation industry not only in Nigeria but also Africa and the globe as a whole.
