Empowering Africa's Energy Landscape Through Trade

Being the biggest economy and the most populous nation in Africa, Nigeria has a unique and critical role to play towards the realization of the African Union Agenda 2063 - The Africa We Want- An integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa driven by its own citizens, representing a dynamic force in the international arena. 

Nigeria finds herself in an exciting yet challenging position in history occasioned by the advent of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) which has given impetus to a need for enhanced & effective collaboration in business, trade, and investment. While this opens significant opportunities for Africa, Nigeria is in pole position to reap the benefits of the AfCFTA pie. Successive Nigerian governments through our local content development and backward integration initiatives and with the full commitment of the private sector have consistently grown our productive capacities especially in services, food production and industry. 

The Nigeria we need to be in the evolving Africa is a prosperous country with a growing, innovative and dynamic economy, resilient to external shocks, secure in food, energy and well-being and creating decent jobs for her youthful population. With the African Continental Free Trade Area, we have an opportunity to scale up our productive capacity to serve the African market which imports circa $1trillion of goods and services annually compared to Nigeria’s total annual trade of circa $100bn. This is even more exciting as we will be trading at preferential terms and focused on products and services made in Africa, for Africa.
