Delegates to the retreat will also discuss the future of Igboland as the economic hub of West Africa, challenges of investment and development of the region, government and private initiatives; the challenges of poverty and youth empowerment in Alaigbo, in addition to “Ndigbo and their neighbours; Biafra and the Igbo bank savings.”

Over 30 Igbo groups including think tanks, namely Aka Ikenga, Nzuko Umunna, Igbo Bu Igbo, and others are expected at the event.
