The Organization of Youths in International Trade and Commerce (OY-ITC), has announced that a trade mission to the USA, tagged “the Houston Trade Show” has been slated for February, 2022.
The trade mission, in partnership with BuyNaija and the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, is designed to share with the world the creativity and productivity of the Nigerian youths; support the development and advancement of Nigerian youths in international trade and commerce while consolidating the leadership capacities among young Nigerians.
The OY-ITC is also collaborating with Committee of Youth on Mobilization and Sensitization (CYMS) to consolidate on youth mobilization towards the event.
OY-ITC President, Chinedu Amadi, told journalists at the Arrival Hall of the Nnamdi Azikiwe, International Airport, Abuja, that the OY-ITC was a robust initiative with the objective of giving Nigeria youths the recognition and leverage they need to be true future leaders of Nigeria.
“The OY-ITC will avail youths with immense networking and mentoring opportunities; partnerships with credible persons and organizations, nationally and internationally,” Amadi said, adding that “OY-ITC is expected to be a firm grip on the challenges of globalization.”
According to OY-ITC President, “the partnership with BuyNaija would elicit keen interaction with manufacturers of finished goods in Nigeria while providing momentum for local manufacturing. The OY-ITC would make Nigerian brands stand out and create value for the Naira.”
Mr. Amadi explained that the Trade Missions abroad and Trade Fairs locally would be the main vehicles for the OY-ITC business model.
“Abroad, as in the Houston Trade Show 2022, the soul of the event shall be Exhibitions, Seminars, Trade tours, Investment drives, and recognitions of outstanding initiatives by youths. These recognitions and awards will serve as motivation for young persons of integrity and wisdom,” he added.
He further said that the OY-ITC would be propelled by the quality of its membership, explaining that registration would cost a token “to guide a deliberate membership process demanded by the set goals of the OY-ITC.”
Mr. Amadi noted that it would take a high level of integrity to belong to an organization that travels abroad often with zero per cent defection possibility.
He, therefore, called on well-meaning Nigerians to support the lofty ideals of the organization.
“Stakeholders in the Nigeria project should support the OY-ITC, especially as its close partnership with BuyNaija Project of Federal Ministry of Industry Trade and Investment alongside CYMS, would yield immense economic benefits.”
Endorsed by the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, OY-ITC, Amadi explained, has become a public trust that members run on behalf of Nigerian citizens.
“The OY-ITC extended a hand of fellowship to all by saying, come, let’s go to the Houston Trade Show.”
