Nigeria has a record of steady growth and improved political stability. Nigeria’s GDP makes it the largest economy and market in Africa and the 26th largest in the world.  Nigeria’s annual growth rate averaged 7 percent over the past decade.  Almost 40 million Nigerian live in consuming class households.  As a result, the country is regarded as one of the fastest growing economies in the world with the GDP in 2015 US$510 billion.  To sustain this annual growth rate, the GON is liberalizing Nigeria’s economy, promoting public-private partnership and encouraging strategic alliances with foreign firms, especially for infrastructure development and technology acquisition in critical sectors such as security, power generation, transportation, and healthcare.
