Nigeria is among the ten fastest growing economies in the world, featuring an impressive growth rate of 7.5% over the past five years! At MBDA, we are opening new markets for U.S. minority-owned companies to take advantage of trade and investment opportunities in Nigeria, which is recognized as one of the main drivers of international trade in West Africa.

We invite you to join us on August 2-4, 2013, for the Imo State Congress of America Business Forum, which will take place in Atlanta, Georgia, the home of approximately 8,000 Nigerians.  At this year’s Conference, MBDA will present on the topic of “Encouraging and Assisting Diasporas to Export U.S. Products to Nigeria.” MBDA’s participation will help to strengthen ties between the African diaspora community and the Atlanta MBDA Business Center, while also supporting the Doing Business in Africa Campaign.

This Conference offers an exciting agenda comprising of presentations from key officials, including the Governor of Imo State, His Excellency Rochas Okorocha. Attendees will hear from experts on cutting-edge topics ranging from business opportunities in agriculture and cosmetics, obtaining loans for international business, and the outlook of healthcare in Imo State. The Conference also offers effective networking opportunities and is an ideal forum for U.S. minority-owned companies and the diaspora business community to build relationships and help achieve economic growth and create jobs in the U.S. and Nigeria.
