The South Africa-Nigeria Chamber of Commerce offers, as one of its benefits, regular networking events for its members where they can meet and share experiences about doing business in both countries. On an ad hoc basis, non-members are included in these events, which are also a way for the Chamber to raise awareness about itself and about the Nigerian business and investment climate. The events focus mostly on corporate views and engagement but also include diplomats, ministers and government officials and agencies from time to time.
DATE: 20 and 21 October 2016
VENUE: Sandton Convention Centre

Top bankers from both countries and others in the financial services and related sectors will gather in Johannesburg for two days of interactive, exciting and insightful debates and presentations.
