The 6th annual Practical Nigerian Content Forum (PNC) will take place from the 22nd to 24th November 2016 in Abuja, Nigeria. According to the organisers of the event, the decision to hold the Forum for the first time in Abuja was made following discussions with the NCDMB, other partners, the Nigerian oil and gas industry and other Government agencies.
The CWC Group in partnership with the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) and the Bayelsa State Government, developed the annual Practical Nigerian Content Youth Workshop (PNC).
