Message from the Ambassador
Secretary Clinton has identified economic statecraft as a top U.S. foreign policy priority and recently unveiled a "Jobs Diplomacy" plan that will support exports, inward investment, and a level playing field for U.S. business.
The U.S. Mission in Nigeria understands the importance of economic statecraft and supports American businesses in a variety of ways. There are many opportunities in Nigeria, from the power sector to agriculture, as well as infrastructure.
Our United States Commercial Service (CS Nigeria), located at the American Consulate General in Lagos, is the main point of contact for U.S. companies interested in doing business in Nigeria. The professional staff is available to assist Americans find Nigerian partners who are interested in U.S. goods and services.
CS Nigeria supports American businesses coming to trade shows in Nigeria, sends Nigerian businesses to U.S. trade shows, and provides supplier catalogs to make it easy for Nigerians to find U.S. products, services, and partners.
Our experienced Economic Officers at the Mission also support U.S. businesses, providing analysis, information and additional on-the-ground support for U.S. companies in Nigeria.
In summary, we hope American companies will find lucrative opportunities in Nigeria and we stand ready to support them.
