Nigeria set to increase trade with Ireland

Nigerian Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Audu Ogbeh, attended talks with Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney, who is on a trade mission with 45 Irish firms this week in west Africa.

“On agri-food trade, we discussed the growing trade in exports from Ireland to Nigeria particularly dairy which alone is worth €140m last year, up 50% since 2010.

“We discussed how Nigeria can become a stronger base for Irish investment in the region. I look forward to visiting investments by leading companies such as Ornua and Kerry Group later in the week,” said Mr Coveney. The trade mission features inputs from agri- food, education, financial, aviation, energy and ICT.

“The events in Abuja confirm our view there are strong opportunities in the Nigerian market for Irish companies in a number of key sectors including education, financial services, aviation, med-tech and oil and gas,” said Enterprise Ireland CEO Julie Sinnamon. Read more
