Vladimir noted that Nigeria remains one of the most strategic markets for growth within the Middle East and Africa 2103.

"We have global relationships TMCs and we work with TMCs like America Express, BCD and others on a global level and in the local market, we localise that relationship with the same terms and conditions, with the same agreements that we have in place but the local connectivity is incredibly important.

"We are working with our owners in order to develop additional hotels. We have signed 8 deals that will open over the next 5 years and we are continuously looking out for additional opportunities to grow. Nigeria is probably one of our most strategic markets for growth within the Middle East and Africa.

"Our goals are based on how we can add hotels within a certain country, bring them up to the level of talent within that country so that they can be efficient and effective within the hotels. Its about how you can develop the talents within Nigeria so that the people working in the Nigerian hotel industry are Nigerians. Whether it is junior level or senior levels, we want to see our general managers from Nigeria for example. But you have to start from the bottom educating and providing the right level of training so that the employees would then grow and take on additional responsibilities and become leaders within the industry in the property segment."
