Nigeria: Highlights from CCA Trade and Investment Mission to Nigeria

It was an honor to lead the Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) Trade and Investment mission to Nigeria, visiting Abuja, the nation’s capital, and Lagos, the commercial center, from February 21-26. CCA is a business association focused solely on promoting U.S – Africa business, trade, investments and partnerships.

In Abuja, the delegation met with His Excellency Bola Tinubu, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and met with multiple ministers and heads of agencies. The president acknowledged that the country is facing headwinds but assured the delegation that he was committed to creating investment opportunities and growing the economy. Our team at Axxess and Cavista Holdings sponsored a dinner for the delegation, senior government officials and business leaders to celebrate the successful trade and investment mission. It was an opportunity to showcase the best of CCA and our upcoming summit.

In Lagos, the delegation met with the H.E Jide Sanwo-Olu, Governor of Lagos State. The governor shared the investments they have made in transportation, health and technology. We had the pleasure of hosting the CCA team at our Cavista Holdings office in Lagos and we concluded the mission trip with a reception at the Consul General’s residence.
