About this event

Trade and investment opportunities in Africa’s biggest economy

Nigeria has the highest largest economy in Africa (GDP of US$441 billion in 2021) and the largest population (217 million in 2022) in addition to one of the largest populations of youth in the world. Nigeria is a multi-ethnic and culturally diverse society consisting of 36 autonomous states. With an abundance of resources, it is Africa’s biggest oil exporter, ranks first in African in farm output and also has the largest natural gas reserves on the continent. Despite some development challenges Nigeria possesses strong business and investment fundamentals and represents a tremendous market opportunity for Canadian companies looking to invest, export products or source imports.
