The program will be tailor-made according to your objectives and needs. Prior to the trip an in-depth-interview with all participants will serve to identify specific expectations and needs. These company profiles will then be sent to our local partners in Nigeria, to allow for a better planning of the individual part of the program. For more details, please, see the draft program below. We would be glad to take you with us on our trip from 25th - 29th June 2018. Do not miss this unique chance and register now!

FFM: Nigeria

The trip in a nutshell

  • Individual meetings with Nigerian companies and entrepreneurs, as well as local services providers
  • Individual company and/or site visits
  • Overview on business opportunities in Nigeria
  • Information about the economic situation / investment incentives / local characteristics
  • Contacts to private and governmental key promotion institutions / organisations in Nigeria

Economic Outlook
Nigeria has overtaken South Africa as the strongest economic market on the African continent. On a global scale, the African country can keep up, because it is not only the economically strongest country in Africa, but since the year 2000 on the way among the 30 largest global economies. The population of around 174 million inhabitants offers enormous potential for Swiss companies. Anyone who manages to position themselves properly in Nigeria enjoys a tremendous advantage to undertake further expansion steps into Africa.
