U.S. mission participants will gain first-hand market information, access to government decision makers, and one-on-one meetings with business contacts, including potential agents, distributors and partners. In addition, Nigeria is often considered a strong gateway into other West African markets. During the mission, Nigerian companies will benefit from learning more about U.S. products and services and face-to-face introductions to U.S. companies highly motivated to do business in Nigeria.
In January 2010, President Obama launched the National Export Initiative which aims to double overall U.S. exports by 2015. The trade mission is an outcome of the NEI, and Nigeria represents a key market for U.S. companies that can assist in diversifying Nigeria’s economy through trade, technologies, and services. Last year, U.S.-Nigerian trade totaled $34.5 billion.
The NACC Virtual Trade Expo Marketplace accelerates President Obama’s National Export Initiative which aims to double U.S. exports by the end of 2014, supporting economic and job growth. Participating firms will gain market insights, make industry contacts, solidify business strategies, and advance specific projects with the goal of increasing U.S. exports to Nigeria.
