Renowned for its status as the second-largest stock trading platform in the nation in terms of market capitalization, it leads the pack when it comes to trading volume. The act of ringing the closing bell at NASDAQ is a time-honored tradition that symbolizes the conclusion of a dynamic trading day.

In a statement released on a crisp Monday morning, the United States Chamber of Commerce proudly announced that this bell-ringing ceremony, featuring President Tinubu, will coincide with the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). It’s a ceremony that carries profound significance, signifying the vital economic connections that bind the United States and Nigeria together.

Set against the backdrop of NASDAQ’s headquarters in the heart of New York, this event serves as a beacon of the enduring economic ties and thriving collaboration between these two nations.

The statement goes on to express an ardent hope that this momentous celebration, coupled with the deliberations of the U.S.-Nigeria Executive Business Dialogue, will further fortify economic bonds and nurture a robust spirit of cooperation between the American and Nigerian business communities.

As the largest global business organization, representing an extensive spectrum of companies across all sectors and sizes in the economy, the United States Chamber of Commerce takes pride in its rich tapestry of membership. It encompasses not only small businesses and local chambers of commerce but also influential industry associations and major corporations, all united in the pursuit of economic growth and prosperity.
