The maiden edition of the conference brought together participants from organized private sectors and the development community to consider more sustainable ways of harnessing private sector and development partners to provide platforms for strategic engagement with high level support for critical development challenges.

The Head, DFID Office and South West Regional Coordinator, David Ukagwu said that the conference will increase private sector capacity to partner for development programs and  increase their understanding of local and global development challenges,  it will also increase private sector investments and their various development agenda to enable them align their interventions with the focus of the government towards strengthening social services;  and establish local networks between private sector organizations for collaborative effort towards development and in response to emergencies.

Others include identification and adoption of a coordinating platform to optimize public-private cooperation at regional level, taking into account frameworks and flexibilities for specific state settings and application of key lesson learned and best practices during the Ebola emergencies.
