Nigerian London Business Forum (NILOBF) in partnership with London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) invites you to join policymakers, business leaders, investors and finance professionals to reflect on Nigeria’s economic journey as it enters a new phase of growth and prosperity.
Nigeria has been leading the way as Africa’s most lucrative economy. And while recent macroeconomic conditions have worsened, triggered by lower oil prices, inflation and exchange rates combined with scrutiny of Government finances, Nigeria remains an attractive economy for UK investors.
This is one of the first events of 2017 to review Nigeria’s regeneration agenda in London, the summit will address what needs to be done to invigorate the country to its advantage. Following a format that includes an open dialogue and panel discussion, this summit is the first stop to any investor’s journey in exploring Africa’s powerhouse.
The scale of Nigeria’s economy is vast, it is by far Africa’s largest economy by size – $350bn and by population. A recent report by PWC predicts that Nigeria’s economy will grow at a rate of 5 – 7% a year between now and 2030. This figure isn’t just down to the oil reserves, Nigeria has significant resource wealth in fertile land deposits of minerals such as tin, iron ore, coal, limestone, niobium, lead and zinc.
