Exporter Guide for Nigeria 2011
Total food and agricultural imports are estimated to reach $4.0 billion by end of 2011 from about $3.7 billion in 2010. Wheat from the U.S. accounts for more than 20% of Nigeria's total food and agricultural total imports. Exports of other U.S. agricultural products such as tallow, soybean/soybean meal, rice, dairy, fish and seafood products, tobacco and consumer-ready, are also significant. Nigeria's recent import policy and port reforms are encouraging more trade with U.S. exporters. This, along with economic growth and changing consumer demands, are expanding market opportunities for U.S. exports to Nigeria.
