Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa (GDP of $376 billion in 2017) and the largest population (195 million), in addition to one of the largest populations of youth in the world. Nigeria is a multi-ethnic and culturally diverse society consisting of 23 autonomous states. With an abundance of resources, it is Africa's biggest oil exporter, ranks first in African in farm output and also has the largest natural gas reserves on the continent. Despite some development challenges Nigeria possesses strong business and investment fundamentals and represents a tremendous market opportunity for Canadian companies looking to invest, export products or source imports.

The summit is organized by Leadership & Governance Canada Inc. and MineAfrica Inc. in collaboration with the Nigeria High Commission in Ottawa.
