LCCI restates commitment to protecting businesses’ interests

By Rukayat Moisemhe, Lagos.


The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) on Friday restated its commitment to protecting the interests of business community via public policy advocacy.


Its President, Dr Michael Olawale-Cole, voiced the commitment at the LCCI Members’ Day with the theme, “Connecting the Dots”, in Lagos.


Olawale-Cole said that the Chamber, as one of the leading voices of the organised private sector, would continue in its advocacy for a better business environment to engender the success of businesses.


He added that the LCCI would continue to engage government at the federal and state levels to push the development agenda of the business community, as it navigated through economic uncertainties and risks.


“The Chamber’s Secretariat is well-positioned to provide discounted bespoke services to help our members navigate risks and uncertainties.


“Similarly, the LCCI offers a platform for interaction and networking with trade missions from different countries and supports foreign trade ventures of members.


“We are committed to working tirelessly to provide more services, enhance your experiences and increase your satisfaction with the chamber’s services,” he said.


Also speaking, Sir Ladi Smith, Chairman, Membership and Welfare Committee of LCCI, said the Chamber launched its loyalty scheme, which offered rewards, discounts and other special incentives for products and services from partner organisations to LCCI members.


Smith said that some of these entailed discounted services by airlines, hotels, electronics, clothing and technology, urging members to take advantage of these discounted services offered to them.


“We implore all members to position themselves to optimally derive the value of these benefits for your organisations.


“Our Chamber shall continue to stimulate key economic indices to impact your business growth.


“We also expect, in the spirit of reciprocity, that your organisations will continue to contribute their quotas to the development, growth and expansion of the frontiers currently embraced by our great institution,” he said.
