According to a statement by his spokesman, Laolu Akande, Prof. Osinbajo will be speaking on Tuesday at the forum, which is attracting over 2,000 delegates from 72 countries, on the theme of the LPG Week – “Energising Tomorrow.”

The World LGP Week, which was first held in Amsterdam in 2019, is an annual event bringing together major LPG companies, senior public sector officials, industry experts, and other relevant stakeholders.

This year’s LPG Week, which will hold at the Dubai World Trade Centre, creates the opportunity for global stakeholders to engage with the activities lined up, including a global exhibition, technology conference, the LPG Development Summit, among others.

The World LPG Association was established in 1987 and granted Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council, ECOSOC, in 1989. WLPGA is the umbrella association that globally coordinates the LPG industry.

Vice President Osinbajo is expected back in Abuja on Thursday.
