Investing in Nigeria: Recognising the opportunities. Dealing with the challenges.
Nigeria has Africa’s largest population and biggest economy. There is also massive migration from the countryside to the cities and a huge shortage of accommodation in those cities.
... So is now a good time to put some money into Nigeria?
... What type of property makes the best investment?
... What are the risks – and what can you do to minimise them?
At this session John Howell & FdiAfrica's Bola Aderemi and Debbie Prekebena will be joined by representatives of our Nigerian exhibitors to discuss the options.
The list includes ...
- Delta Mega Trend
- Landmark Homes
- DNJ Properties
- Gracias Global Property Nigeria
