(Source: EEAS)

Lagos 28 June 2022 – Business leaders and government officials from Nigeria and Europe will seek to identify new opportunities to unlock the Nigerian economy towards win-win outcomes for Nigeria and Europe during the 8th EU-Nigeria Business Forum taking place at Eko Hotels Lagos on June 30 July 1 2022.

The EU-Nigeria Business Forum has served as a strong platform for European and Nigerian businesses to engage with the Nigerian authorities towards improving the business environment. This year’s event themed Nigeria and the ₦ew €conomy will focus on three key sectors, including backward integration policy of the Nigerian Government; opportunities to increase gas exports to Europe; and new initiatives in the agricultural sector.

While these sectors are not new, the potential in them remains largely untapped. During the 8th EU-Nigeria Business Forum, discussions will aim to identify the causes of these hindrances and explore how these opportunities can be unlocked for the mutual benefit of Nigeria and Europe.

As in previous editions, this year’s EU-Nigeria Business Forum will seek to identify and address the bottlenecks militating against existing investors and deter new ones from investing in Nigeria’s economy. The event is jointly organised by the EU Delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS, in collaboration with EU Member States in Nigeria.

In addition to the plenary discussions, there will be world café-style exhibitions on both days of the event. The first day will feature a demonstration by several European companies operating in Nigeria on how they have been able to implement the backward integration policy of the Nigerian Government in their various sectors. Proceedings on the second day will be mainly focused on the Team Europe projects and EU businesses’ investments in the Nigerian agricultural sector.

Participation to the Forum will be open to private sector and Government officials. The detailed programme can be obtained from the website
