Prince Joel and Associates, an indigenous law firm has pledged to retool the existing investment policies in Nigeria for optimal performance and Ease of Doing Business (EDB) index ranking.
According to the managing partner of the firm, Prince William-Joel, the aim is to ensure that investment policies attract desirable investors into the country.
In a statement, William-Joel said the primary aim of the event is to attract global and Nigeria professionals in the diaspora to take advantage of the vast opportunities in Nigeria’s real estate sector.
The event was organized by the Association of Africans in Scotland (AAS), in collaboration with Prince Joel & Associates Law firm at Crammond Kirk Hall, Edinburgh, Scotland, with the theme ‘Real Estate Investments and Ease of Doing Business in Nigeria: Challenges & Realities.’
According to William-Joel who was the theme speaker, the focus is on how to profile and navigate investments in Nigeria, highlighting the latest developments in the ease of doing business policy framework, spotlighting on investing in real estate property and construction opportunities.
His words: “The Ease of Doing Business (EDB) is an index, developed by World Bank, that scores and ranks countries based on how easy it is to set up and operate a business there.
“The focal point of the evaluation by the global apex bank is premised on the policies government put in place to guarantee business start-ups, a seamless process in getting permits or licenses depending on the sector of investment, power, loan, land permit, payment of multiple taxes, bureaucratic bottle necks, amongst others.”
He noted that the discourse is for aspiring and established investors to receive accurate, useful and current market insights that will address the myths and misconceptions of investing in Nigeria, whilst connecting investors with pre-qualified, safe real estate investment opportunities from reputable realtors in Nigeria.
