Event Description

When: 9:30-11:00AM EDT

This webinar will explore the issue of approaching local content from both a government policy and company perspective, with a focus on Nigeria which has made some of the most high-profile attempts to increase the participation of local suppliers and employees. While there has been much attention on these efforts, including regulations involving targeted percentages, what has been the actual record of success? Jesse Salah Ovadia, Assistant Professor at the University of Windsor and author of The Petro-Developmental State in Africa: Making Oil Work in Angola, Nigeria and the Gulf of Guinea, will speak to the successes and failures of African governments in creating and enforcing local content policy in the extractives sector, using Nigeria to exemplify key trends. Kathy Khuu, Senior Advisor, Economic Development and Local Content, Government Relations at Shell International B.V., and Austin Uzoka, Nigerian Content Development, Industry Collaboration & Advocacy Manager at Shell Nigeria will then describe Shell’s approach including through the Local Content Centre of Excellence (CoE) and providing insight from years on the ground in Nigeria.
