Niger: profitable investment opportunities.

Position:Statistical data

The current administration has worked hard to ensure Niger is open for business. The government is investing across a number of sectors and is looking for strategic long-term partners. The country is northern Nigeria's most important trading partner and offers a haven of stability in the region with a decently-sized local population. Its oil refinery for example is already supplying the region with petroleum and other derivatives. A new round of licences are about to be auctioned off on the oil and gas sector. The country is an important global partner in providing peace and security n the region, and with Nigeria and Algeria, it is building the trans-Saharan gas pipeline to supply mainland Europe with its energy needs. New mining and investment codes market it an interesting market with regional reach.
