FT Live and fDi Magazine, in association with Lekki Free Zone Development Company (LFZD), are pleased to present the ‘Investing in Lekki Free Zone’ dinner briefing. 

Nigeria remains a top destination for FDI into Africa, and in spite of the challenges involved in operating in this major west African state, there are still many opportunities to invest across all sectors of what it now Africa’s biggest economy.

As Nigeria continues its development, a renewed focus on its free zones is helping fuel further investments. The Lekki Free Zone’s offshore economic growth zone, for example, is establishing itself as a one-stop global business haven, wooing foreign investors, promoting exports and creating job opportunities.

But investing in Nigeria still has its risks and challenges. So how is the government addressing these challenges? And how do businesses that invest in Nigeria ensure success?

This briefing examined Nigeria’s role as Africa’s biggest economy, considered how its economy is being stimulated by free zones, looked at opportunities for growth, assessed efforts to promote security and stability, and examined how Nigeria’s 2015 elections could impact on the investment environment.

Key topics included:
  • Where are the opportunities for investors in Africa’s biggest economy?
  • How can you make the most of a Nigerian investment?
  • What role can a free zone play in your Nigerian investment?
