The Raw Material Research and Development Council is set to hold an exhibition tagged “Techno Expo 2013” which will hold from Tuesday, February 12, 2013 to Friday February 15, 2013 at the RMRD corporate headquarters, 17 Aguiyi Ironsi Street, Maitama, Abuja, Nigeria. The event will feature R & D exhibitions, machinery and equipment exhibitions, investor’s forum and many more. The theme for this programme is “Celebrating 25 Years of Local Raw Materials Development in Nigeria”.
The council stated in its publication that in order to strengthen the gains so far made by the Council, it is expedient to reflect on the activities and work with stakeholders to develop of a common agenda for national economic transformation through resource-based investments.
The focus of this year’s programme would be on addressing national economic transformation through carefully designed and consciously set priority programmes that would emphasize technology innovation as the critical ingredient of the Country’s economic growth and development. While there will be room for exhibition of various types of technologies and products made from local materials, the Expo is expected to highlight issues related to the production of some key secondary industrial feedstock.
