and the Institute for African Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences

We invite you on November 26 at 14.30 Moscow time for an online lecture on the specifics of doing business in Nigeria, organized by AECAS, the Institute for African Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Roscongress Foundation.

Nigeria is one of the key African countries for foreign investors. It ranks second in terms of GDP in Africa (in terms of PPP), possesses colossal reserves of mineral resources and is in dire need of capital and technology in the production and processing of oil and gas, infrastructure, agriculture, telecommunications, etc.
It is in these areas that Russian companies have competitive advantages that will help them gain a foothold in one of the most dynamic African markets.
Lecture topic:
"Nigeria and Russian business: prospects, interaction with the elites and long-term planning, taking into account the country's economic policy"


The lecture will be delivered by representatives of the Institute for African Studies and the Russian Foreign Ministry.
The event will consist of two parts:

2. Q&A - 1 hour. All participants will be able to ask their questions.
