It is our pleasure to invite companies interested in exploring trade opportunities with Niger on a trade mission from 6 till 10 March 2017 to Niamey. This is part of a longer term programme between NABC and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Bamako, Mali, aimed to strengthen business ties between the Netherlands and Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso. As such, the mission follows up on a business forum held in the Netherlands from 28 August till 1 September 2016. This multisectoral trade mission - with emphasis on the agriculture, water, energy and logistics sectors - is however also open to companies who were not present at the forum.

During the information seminar about Niger, organised by NABC on the 9th of February, it was made clear that plenty of business opportunities can be found in Niger. The powerpoint slides of the presenters, indicating some of these opportunities, can be found here.

Since this mission is sponsored by the Embassy of the Netherlands in Bamako, companies can join the mission for a sharply reduced fee of Euro 250,-

The tentative programme is as follows: 

Monday 6 March: Flight to Niamey and opening dinner (with the Dutch Ambassador and economic attaché in Mali, as well as a representative of the local Chambre of Commerce, CCIN)
Tuesday 7 March: Presentations from CCIN and the Export Promotion Agency, networking & matchmaking

Wednesday 8 March: Company visits

Thursday 9 March: Follow-up meeting and company and institutions visits

Friday 10 March: Arrival at Schiphol in the morning

The full programme can be found here.
