The United States Chamber of Commerce has extended a prestigious invitation to President Bola Tinubu, inviting him to ring the closing bell of the NASDAQ on Wednesday, September 20.
NASDAQ, which stands for the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations, is a prominent stock exchange headquartered in New York, USA. Renowned for its high trading volume, it ranks second in market capitalization, following closely behind the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
The ringing of the closing bell at NASDAQ signifies the conclusion of a trading session for the day, and this upcoming event holds special significance.
In an official statement released on Monday, the US Chamber of Commerce announced that the bell-ringing ceremony with President Tinubu will occur on the sidelines of the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). This symbolic event is intended to underscore the economic ties between the United States and Nigeria.
The ceremony will be hosted at the NASDAQ headquarters in New York City, a fitting location for the occasion.
The statement from the US Chamber of Commerce expressed hope that this celebration and the discussions that unfold during the U.S.-Nigeria Executive Business Dialogue will further fortify economic connections and foster collaboration between the American and Nigerian business communities.
The US Chamber of Commerce, representing companies of all sizes across diverse sectors of the economy, stands as the world’s largest business organization. Its membership encompasses small businesses, local chambers of commerce, influential industry associations, and major corporations alike.
