CSEA Executive Director, Chukwuka Onyekwena joined other prominent business thought-leaders, high-level government officials, and partners to discuss important economic and regulatory goals and also to examine ways to improve cooperation between the United States and Nigeria, during the 2024 IMF/World Bank spring Meetings.
