Not only is Lagos the economic hub of Nigeria and West Africa but also one of the largest economies on the whole African continent. With the establishment of Lagos’ new Lekki Port as well as the Lagos Free Zone, Nigeria’s epicentre for foreign direct investment is gaining a new momentum. Currently BASF is expanding within the zone and other companies like Arla, Colgate or Kellogg’s are also established. Nevertheless it is still challenging for German businesses to identify good local partners, business opportunities and adequate financing for an expansion into the market.

Cameroon is still an untapped market for many German companies. Yet the country shows a lot of potential as a hub for Central Africa. Especially in areas that are also important for the sustainable development of the country - rural development, health and digital - it is worthwhile for German companies to get involved.

Benin has opened up strongly to foreign investment in recent years. Thanks to significant economic policy reforms, the partner country of the G20 Compact with Africa initiative offers business opportunities in numerous sectors, including logistics, digitalisation and agribusiness. The processing industry in particular is booming! 45 kilometres from the capital Cotonou is a 1,200-hectare special economic zone, specifically for agricultural products. In the course of the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), this is likely to gain further importance. However, the West African country is dependent on the commitment of the private sector to drive forward the transformation to a sustainable agricultural and food economy.
