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

The 2021 LPG Week, which will be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre, builds the opportunity for global stakeholders to engage with the activities lined up.

The activities include a global exhibition, technology conference, and the LPG Development Summit.

WLPGA 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 which globally coordinates the LPG industry.

The Guardian reports that world leaders, top government ministers from several countries and chief executives of major multinational corporations in the Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) sectors around the globe will be present at the week-long 2021 World LPG Week, which comes under the aegis of the Paris-based WLPGA.

On Tuesday, Osinbajo will be speaking at the forum, which will be hosting over 2,000 delegates from 72 countries, on the theme of the World LPG Week – “Energising Tomorrow.”

Osinbajo is anticipated back in Abuja on Thursday.
