On Thursday the 9th of February a Niger Business Seminar will be held in the NH HotelWTC The Hague. The Business Seminar will focus on the major economic sectors of the country (such as agribusiness, water, energy and logistics) and is targeting businesses, NGOs and knowledge institutes.

During the day, the Nigerien Embassy based in Brussels will present business opportunities in the country and representatives of Dutch companies and organisations already active in Niger will share their experiences. In addition, economic instruments from the Dutch government for Niger will be highlighted and NABC will present the programme for the upcoming mission to Niger that will take place from 6 to 10 March. The presentations will be followed by a lunch, during which there is more time to ask questions and network.

This Business Seminar will thus be a great opportunity to deepen your insights in the business potential of Niger and we hope to be able to welcome you on the 9th.
