Eko Atlantic City - Take part in one of West Africa's major construction projects

Business Sweden invites your company to a two day seminar focused on Eko Atlantic City, a major construction project aimed at providing sustainable living, commerce, business and tourism for Lagos.

Lagos, also referred to as ”Eko” in one of the indigenous languages, Yoruba, is the economic capital of Nigeria with an estimated population of at least 21 million. The development of Eko Atlantic City on 3,577sq km of land recovered from the Atlantic Ocean will upon completion hold a total of 3,000 buildings, an estimated residential population of 250,000 and 150,000 daily commuters.

Discussions are now on-going between Business Sweden, the developers of Eko Atlantic City and the construction company responsible for building the first phase of the project, to meet with Swedish suppliers in the following sectors – construction, infrastructure and security.

The seminar will therefore provide ample opportunity for Swedish companies to tap into the project at an early stage and meet with key stakeholders to better understand what opportunities exist and how to become a major supplier.
