Overview

This private roundtable will focus on the business environment in Nigeria for British small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurs. As Africa’s largest economy, Nigeria remains one of the UK’s most important trading and investment partners. However, recent security concerns and political upheaval in the run-up to next year’s elections have not improved perceptions of risk in a country ranked 147th out of 189 in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business report. This will be a forum for in-depth discussion on opportunities and concerns for UK businesses in Nigeria.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
