Event Summary:
The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration (ITA) is organizing the first safety and security trade mission to Nigeria and Kenya (May 21-29th), with an optional stop in South Africa (May 30-31st). The purpose of this mission is to help U.S. firms in the safety and security industry find business partners and sell products and services in sub-Saharan Africa.

The mission will include stops in Lagos, Nigeria and Nairobi, Kenya, with an optional stop in Johannesburg, South Africa. Participating firms will gain market insights, make industry contacts, solidify business strategies, and advance specific projects, with the goal of increasing U.S. exports of products and services to Africa. The mission will include customized one-on-one business appointments with pre-screened potential buyers, agents, distributors and joint venture partners; meetings with state and local government officials and industry leaders; and networking events.

For the Nigeria leg of the trade mission, companies will have the opportunity to participate in the USA Fair, a 2-day conference and exhibition followed by a 1-day appreciation and recognition award ceremony, the Networking with the U.S.A. or “NUSA” awards. As background, NUSA is a self-select platform that enables the U.S. Commercial Service in Nigeria to carry out background checks/due diligence and vet interested Nigerian businesses for probable enlistment in our database for client management with U.S firms looking to engage with local partners, thereby providing indispensable assurance to U.S. exporters and investors.
