Investor Mission to Nigeria

January 30th – 1st February 2014

Purpose of the trip

Nigeria is now officially heralded as Africa’s biggest economy. Foreign success stories are rare but with a population of 175m, 107% mobile penetration and vast petroleum resources, it is a difficult country to ignore. The delegation participated in high level meetings in both Abuja and Lagos, where they had high level meetings and receptions with Aliko Dangote and Tony Elumelu.
