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.

Now that the dust has settled on the Nigerian election, a new administration is in place but the economy is still suffering the effects of the low oil price and political uncertainty about the way ahead. A team of analysts looks at what has happened since the April poll and where the economy may be headed
