The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has concluded plans to partner with the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) on traffic management and control during the forthcoming 2022 Lagos International Trade Fair.

The General Manager of LASTMA, Mr. Bolaji Oreagba stated this during a courtesy visit by officials of LCCI to LASTMA Headquarters, adding that the agency is ready to participate fully with relevant stakeholders towards having a free flow of traffic in and around the Tafawa Balewa Square axis during International the Fair.

According to him, the Lagos International Trade Fair would boost global and regional trade for start-up brands, big industries, tech hubs, and multinational companies while strengthening existing foreign partnership tiers to support African trade.

“We would not leave any stone unturned in ensuring the free flow of traffic during the event, which would attract more vehicular and human traffic to the area’. the General Manager noted.

He commended the management of LCCI for sustaining the tempo of the International Trade Fair for over three decades.
Earlier, Engr. Musbau Opeyemi Aminu, Chairman, Operations Committee, LCCI, thanked the entire management and officers of the Agency for their continuous support towards the successful hosting of the International Trade Fair annually in Lagos.

Aminu said: “The Lagos Chambers of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) plans to ensure that the Fair would enable businesses to meet sales targets, boost trade volume, eliminate market restrictions and integrate wider markets for more investment”.
