Past Events

The South Africa-Nigeria Chamber of Commerce offers, as one of its benefits, regular networking events for its members where they can meet and share experiences about doing business in both countries. On an ad hoc basis, non-members are included in these events, which are also a way for the Chamber to raise awareness about itself and about the Nigerian business and investment climate. The events focus mostly on corporate views and engagement but also include diplomats, ministers and government officials and agencies from time to time.

How have SA and Nigerian ports fared over the Covid-19 lockdowns? What are some of the key export and import challenges for business currently? How are countries preparing for trading under African Continental Free Trade Area from early 2021? Join us to listen to our speakers to discuss these and other issues.
