Nigerian Diaspora Direct Investment Summit (NDDIS 2013)

The Nigerian Diaspora Direct Investment Summit main aim is to help the Diaspora and Nigerians in the UK to Help Nigeria.

With the support of the Nigeria High Commission in London, Federal Ministry of Trade and Investments, British African Business Alliance (BABA), Shell, Business Council of Africa (BCA), Central Association of Nigerians in the UK (CANUK), Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and several other stakeholders, NDDIS is a new initiative to help the Nigerian government make a paradigm shift from the endless search for Foreign Direct Investment and to tap into the Diaspora.
Many in the Diaspora want to go to Nigeria with several initiatives and projects, contribute to the development of their country and help create jobs but have difficulties doing so because of lack of information about how to go about it. This is the bridge that aims to connect Nigerians in Diaspora with enablers from Nigeria. Its main purpose is for new businesses to be established, for new partnerships to be forged and for new jobs to be created with Nigerians from the UK and the Diaspora as key Drivers
