Is Nigeria to become the next global manufacturing hub?

“There is more to Nigeria than oil”

Nigeria’s leading manufacturing experts will meet for the inaugural Nigeria Manufacturing Expo in Lagos in March, which will be launched in response to the government’s commitment to industrialisation and Nigeria’s need to diversify. The event is hosted by Event Patrons, the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) in partnership with Spintelligent Pty and Clarion Events Ltd, African event specialists and organisers of the West African Power Industry Convention (WAPIC).
