"Nigeria is Africa's largest economy and also the hub of the economy of ECOWAS, a huge market of 260 million people. It is India's biggest trading partner in Africa. With the ongoing reforms being implemented by President Mohammadu Buhari and the expected takeoff of Dangote refineries with a capacity of 650,000 barrels per day, Nigeria will be self-sufficient on refined petroleum products and other byproducts for industrial applications. That will boost her economy and make her a regional transportation hub. She will also become self-sufficient in food production with the ongoing revolution in agriculture. Indian companies are already part of that success story and we invite even more of them to invest in Nigeria"

-Maj. Gen. (Red.) Chris Sunday Eze, High Commissioner of Nigeria to India



The Indian and Nigerian militaries have maintained excellent, cordial and professional defence relations over the years through various military-to-military engagements, which include training, exchange programmes, high-level visits amongst others. At present, the defence relationship between both countries was concretised with the institution of the India-Nigera Joint Defence Cooperation (JDC) agreement in 2007, which provides a platform upon which the various thematic defence engagement issues are introduced, deliberated upon the implemented for the mutual benefit of both countries. The JDC committee meets annual and the last conference hosted by Nigeria was held from November 20-21, 2017 during which far reaching deliberations were made which would further deepen and project the India-Nigeria defence relations to greater heights.

Nigeria is open for business and investment from Foreign Investors. This has become more imperative with the reduced revenues from crude oil. Nigeria, therefore, is driving diversification of the economy and inviting foreign participation in various viable sectors including the Agriculture and the Agro Allied, Mining, Automobile, Transportation, Power, Tele- Communication, Medical, Hospitality and Tourism. Returns on investments are high compared with what obtains in Europe and Asia. Nigeria remains the most lucrative business destination in Africa for the following reasons: Abundant Resources; Large Market, as it offers the market of sub-Saharan Africa; Political Stability; Free Market Economy; Robust Private Sector; Skilled and Low Cost Labour. Investment incentives abound such as Companies Income Tax, Pioneer Status Incentives, and investment in infrastructure.
