The Nigerian American Chamber of Commerce (NACC) has announced plans to attract fresh long term Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) from the United States into Nigeria’s agriculture and power sector.

Preparatory to its Independence Investment Forum (TIIF) scheduled to hold on the 1st of October, 2018 in Lagos, NACC President, Otunba Oluwatoyin Komolafe, explained that the forum would showcase investible areas in the nation’s mining and commodity markets for the US government and interested parties.

Hmmm!!! Folks, let us say the truth and shame the devil. Many Nigerian non-oil products exporters have been defrauded of huge amount of money in the process of exporting agricultural commodities and solid minerals to foreign countries. Do you know why? They were not trained on export operations, management, documentations and the best methods of payment in export trade. This is terrible!!! Nigerians cannot continue to lose money to foreigners in the course of export business. Exporters, would you like to keep on being scammed? Why don’t you get a practical manual that explains the stages of export trade from processing and packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers? It explains export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade? Yes, it is a contemporary step-by-step guide to export trade. It tells all the contemporary dynamics in export trade. To get it, click on the link below:

The NACC boss at a press briefing said TIIF 2018 would bring together policy makers, domestic and foreign direct investors, business leaders, expert speakers and other key stakeholders to a single location in Lagos, Nigeria and would offer a platform for discussing investment needs and goals without the need for investors to travel to various locations in Nigeria to see projects or for Nigerian companies seeking investments to travel to multiple countries to pitch to investors.

He said for 58 years on, the NACC has grown into a dynamic organisation as it stands as a pillar of the relationship between the United States of America and Nigeria, serving as an important catalyst in bringing together people and ideals to bolster bilateral commercial relations between Nigeria and the United States.

According to him, the chamber has facilitated business-to-business relationships and advanced economic cooperation between Nigeria and the United States through promotion of business and services that improve trade relations and prosperity of both nations; providing programs and services that improve economic prosperity and sustainability of businesses.

He pointed out that The Independence Investment Forum (TIIF) is a yearly event jointly hosted by the chamber and Footprint to Africa, supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of the United States, Nigeria.

In his words, “It would be held on the 1st of October, 2018; Nigeria’s Independence Day. Commemorating the independence of Nigeria, the event seeks to advance economic cooperation between Nigeria and the United States through promotion of business and services that improve trade relations and prosperity of both nations. We are very excited about the level of enthusiasm we have received from proposed speakers, stakeholders, partners and investors in Africa and across the globe.”

He added that Nigeria may be bedevilled with socio-economic challenges but needs country men who will walk the talk, expressing the chamber’s commitment to achieve the feat.
