Global Trade Review returns to Lagos on April 26-27, where GTR West Africa 2023 will once again bring together the leading minds in trade, supply chain, export and infrastructure financing for two days of unrivalled networking and lively debate.

Amongst the very first significant market gatherings to take place following Nigeria’s historic 2023 general election, the next edition of this long-established series comes highly anticipated and perfectly timed to facilitate dealmaking as Africa’s largest economy springs back into action.

Welcoming a distinguished speaker roster featuring the region’s leading corporates, financiers and digital innovators, expert-led discussion will assess evolving trade opportunities and financing conditions under Nigeria’s new President and in key markets across West Africa.

With a strong emphasis on high quality networking and audience interaction, GTR West Africa 2023 provides the unique opportunity to join debate on themes ranging hard currency liquidity and the need to boost food security, to sovereign debt sustainability concerns, infrastructure financing and the fintech innovations supporting the establishment and growth of West African supply chains.
