  • Let me begin by stating the obvious: The food industry and everything that caters to it continous to hold great potential in Nigeria, whether we think of developing the domestic market or exports of agricultural products and processing foods. That is why you are all here, and that was the right decision. Africa's biggest economy and most populous country with a very sizeable middle class and, pardon the pun, a growing appetite for high quality products offers good business opportunites that cannot be ignored. And it has a lot of well-educated, creative and business-savvy entrepreneurial talent.

    Nigeria is not an easy environment to do business. But: Yes it remains a country of great economic opportunity, in spite of all the odds. Some German companies invested in Nigeria have been here for a long time. They might have weathered a few crises, but they are still here primarily because they have done well. Let us take some encouragement from their example.

    I wish all of you a very successful and stimulating days at agrofood & plastprintpack Nigeria here in Lagos.
