Niger Business Seminar & Trade Mission

On Thursday the 9th of February a Niger Business Seminar will be held in the NH Hotel in 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.

The tentative programme is as follows:

08:30 - 09:00: Coffee and registration
09:00 – 09:15: Opening speeches by Inès Mazou (Economic Attaché of the Nigerien Embassy to the Benelux) and Irene Visser (Managing Director, NABC)
09:15 – 09:45: Business opportunities in Niger (Inès Mazou, Embassy of Niger to the Benelux)
