Access Nigeria: Seizing Opportunities and Overcoming Obstacles


Printer FriendlyPrinter Friendly
Event Date and Time: 
01/31/2013 - 8:00am - 10:00am

Come learn how to access the opportunities in Nigeria and the West African region, how to overcome and manage the obstacles in doing business there, and the steps necessary to identify appropriate partners.

Best prospects for U.S. businesses in Nigeria exist in many sectors: oil & gas, healthcare, electrical power, computers, telecom, auto parts, construction.

Nigeria accounts for over 40 percent of imports in West Africa and ranks among Africa's largest consumer markets, third after Egypt and South Africa. It offers growth opportunities in many industry sectors for U.S. exports. Doing business in Nigeria can pose some daunting challenges including inadequate energy and transportation infrastructure, weak institutions, the threat of crime and corruption, and recurring episodes of regionalized political instability and violence. Nevertheless, those U.S. companies that take a careful and informed approach to the market can do well and develop longstanding and profitable business relationships and operations in Nigeria for the West African markets.
