Global Pacific & Partners, with our Lead Partner the South Africa-Nigeria Chamber of Commerce, will hold the Nigeria Economic Forum2011 on 17–18 August 2011, at The Protea Hotel Balalaika, Sandton, South Africa.

The Nigeria Economic Forum 2011 will highlight Nigeria’s economic prospects over the next decade and investment opportunities for one of Africa’s key markets. Speakers will address critical projects, strategies and challenges across Nigeria’s industries, and focus on the fast-growing trade/investment relationships between the continent’s two giant economic powers - South Africa and Nigeria.

Nigeria is a top investment destination for companies and venture capital looking for placement in Africa’s fast-growth emerging markets. The continent’s largest oil producer, Nigeria also hosts a fast-growing non-oil set of growing industries, driven by expanding consumer markets and rising demand for new goods and services.

Some of the world largest multinationals are expanding existing operations in Nigeria and many more global companies are seeking acquisitions, investments and a corporate stake in this economy, today with GDP expanding at 7% f2011, partly on the back of a new political mandate for the President and the Government’s reform programs in banking, power, oil/gas, energy and the business environment.

Prior to the Forum, on 17th August,we host our Nigeria Economic Future: Strategy Briefing 2011, with Presentations by Dr Duncan Clarke (Chairman & CEO, Global Pacific & Partners) and Dianna Games (Vice President, The Africa Advisors, Global Pacific & Partners: and Hon CEO, SA-Nigeria Chamber of Commerce) who will provide deep insight into Nigeria’s growth, resources, corporate players, future economic directions, business environment, company entry strategies, on-ground challenges, emerging investment opportunities, and key industries.
