Deutsch - Africa Investment Relationship

The Federal Republic of Germany is the largest single market in the EU. Furthermore, the German-speaking area of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland referred to as DACH- constitute the biggest and strongest market on the European continent. Priorities of development cooperation with Nigeria and west Africa include sustainable economic development, with a focus on small and medium-sized enterprises, vocational training and employment (Germany Ministry of Foreign Affairs).

Nigeria is one of the strongest economies in Africa and home to numerous innovative and successful companies and institutions that are renowned global players. Nigeria’s agricultural sector employs nearly 70% of the population and comprises nearly 22% of GDP. Nigeria possesses an abundance of arable land and a favorable climate for production of nuts, fruits, tubers, and grains. Most farming in Nigeria is subsistence based, utilizing manual labor and relatively little agricultural machinery (Nigeria - Country Commercial Guide, International Trade Administration U.S. Department of Commerce). Nigeria continues to provide great investment potentials on several agricultural products, including poultry, beef, pork, and rice, etc.
