Nigeria’s Minister of Trade & Investment, Okechukwu Enelamah, is to lead a trade delegation from Nigeria for a four-day trade and investment road show in London scheduled for July 11 to 15.

The weeklong activity, which would open with an event tagged “Nigeria Open for Business”, will highlight business opportunities in the energy, agriculture, transport, solid minerals, ICT and infrastructure sectors to UK investors.
