If there were aegis problems in Nigeria, no agent would go to the country to analyze opportunities, companies like Celtel, MTN, Etisalat, would not accept ventured into aegis accident country to do business. Those who advance rumour about aegis and bribery problems in Nigeria are adage so to stop others from authoritative money in the country. Figures don’t lie. They are the bigger testimonies for how accessory Nigeria’s ambiance for business and opportunities are. If you wish to do business in Africa and almanac acceptable allotment on your investment, I acceptable you to arise to Nigeria. The political ambiance in Africa, decidedly in Nigeria is tremendous.

What is accident currently with the Nigerian cyberbanking arrangement is far from getting afflicted in any way by the all-around acclaim crisis. At all-around akin currently, the banks are under-capitalised, but Nigerian banks are over-capitalised. And I do not anticipate this is a botheration at all. I accept that Nigerian banks are beneath burden from added economies aural Africa abstemious that are afflicted by the acclaim challenges.

– Gordon Smith,

Head of Research, Africa and the Middle East, All-embracing Consilium,

(Reported in the Punch Newspaper, June 30th, 2008).

The aloft statements appropriately betoken two understandings of the accompaniment of Nigerian economy. These understandings appearance that, the abridgement is one of the fastest growing economies in Africa and in the world. Although Nigeria has had assortment bread-and-butter history, it has undergone and still ability bread-and-butter reforms, which are aimed at authoritative Nigeria the Africa’s cyberbanking hub and one of the twenty bigger economies in the apple by the year 2020. Needless to say that the country has accomplished political instability, corruption, and poor macroeconomic administering in the past, this was amenable for abhorrent and acrid bread-and-butter situation. The government adamant efforts to reposition the abridgement accept translated into a arresting bread-and-butter advance and development. Several mechanisms accept been put in abode to sustain this advance and development, able of acclimation the interests of stakeholders. Perhaps, this appearance accept to accept afflicted Gordon Smith submission. He declared Nigeria as the a lot of activating bazaar in Africa, which is beneath astringent burden from some countries in Africa to serve as a beanbag adjoin the furnishings of all-around turbulence. He aswell acclaimed that some countries like Ghana, Malawi, Mauritius, a allotment of others were depending on her at the moment due to all-around accident acknowledgment and that the country’s economy, led by the circumscribed banks, was far from getting afflicted by the all-around acclaim crisis currently agitation the world’s cyberbanking giants. He fatigued added that adopted investors, who will be all-around abounding to counterbalance the Nigerian cyberbanking arrangement on the acclaim accident angle about to all-around events, will accretion the nation’s cyberbanking breadth added absorbing to advance and accession basic from.

Faced with abounding challenges, Nigerian government is bent to strengthen, alter and accomplish the abridgement adorable and investment-friendly to both bounded and adopted investors. The government has adopted complete liberalization and globalization as the bread-and-butter policy, instituted privatization and commercialization programmes of accessible enterprises, provided complete aegis for business and people, continued allurement to calm and adopted investors, abolished laws inhibiting competition, accepted and fine-tuned behavior to ensure quick ability of advance and development of all sectors of the economy. The accomplishment is already paying off as Nigeria is now the focus for adopted investment thereby added exponentially Adopted Complete Investment (FDI). Scores of bread-and-butter missions and delegations from developed and developing countries accept visited Nigeria, appropriately accelerating the advance of the abridgement at a actual fast rate.

It becomes pertinent to complete the advance of this altercation to embrace the added compassionate of the aloft statements fabricated by Hamadoun Toure and Gordon Smith. However, it becomes added pertinent to enumerate the inherent investment opportunities in Nigerian abridgement afore discussing the affair of aegis as aloft by Toure.


No doubt, Nigeria is an investment anchorage with endless and advantageous investment opportunities including oil and gas, solid mineral, agriculture, tourism, telecommunication, ability and steel, transport, barter processing zone, cyberbanking sector, complete acreage / property, manufacturing, activity and entertainment, and appearance industry. Investors accept a advanced ambit of opportunities to accept from. It is important to calendar that the bulk of advance of investment is absurd and exponential in any of these sectors. Investors are at advantage of presenting their articles and casework to already-made bazaar demography advantage of the citizenry of over 140 million.

In telecommunication, statistics reveals that adaptable buzz users in Africa were about 280 million, overtaking United States and Canada with their 277 actor users in the aperture division of 2008. With 70 actor access in 2007, the Abstemious became the fastest growing amphitheatre in the world, apery a advance of 38 per cent, advanced of the Middle-East (33 per cent) and the Asia-Pacific (29 per cent).It was aswell arise that the fastest growing markets are amid in arctic and western Africa, apery altogether 63 per cent of the complete access in the region. The almanac showed that Nigeria, Zambia, Tanzania, The Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Algeria, Tunisia, Ghana and South Africa are awful aggressive markets in the Region. The almanac added contends that two-third of Africa’s telephony are in their aboriginal appearance of development, with assimilation ante beneath 30 per cent at the end of 2007.In allotment terms, it was acclaimed that Africa is the fastest growing bazaar in the world, but aswell the added aboriginal in agreement of access afterwards Middle-East.

As Nigeria accounts for 57 per cent of the West Africa adaptable phones, the country is accustomed as the arch and the fastest growing telecom bazaar in Africa. With adaptable buzz users at 44,932,181 and 734,444 for GSM and adaptable CDMA respectively, her contributions to West Africa and Africa’s telecommunication advance can not be overemphasized. While the all-embracing bread-and-butter advance bulk stands at 7% per annum, the adaptable telephony is about 35-50%. Assuming that anniversary of these access was alive for a minute in a day, the country telecoms bazaar has the accommodation to accomplish over USD 16 actor per day (USD16, 666,667) and abutting to USD 6 billion per year (USD 5,833,333,300). This is why telecom companies such as Visafone and Etisalat bound abutting the brand of MTN, Globacom, Celtel and added telecoms account providers in abject opportunities in the country.

Early this year, one of the basic GSM account providers with a subscriber abject of over 15 actor arise a accumulation afterwards taxation of USD650 actor (78 billion naira) for the year 2007.Putting all these together, one can calmly accept Toure’s acquiescence anecdotic Nigerian telecoms bazaar as the best investment destination in Africa.

Recognizing the actuality that the Nigeria telecoms industry is astronomic and there is charge to added accomplishment the breadth to its fullest, the Nigeria Communication Commission (NCC) and the Ministry of Accompaniment for Information and Communications accept fabricated their positions bright by extending allurement to all-around investors for alive accord in the breadth as they are all-around to admission avant-garde cachet and authorization for -to-be applicants for assorted adventure such as Anchored telephony, Adaptable telephony, Anchored agenda (VSAT),Paging, Payphone, Internet and added bulk added services.

With the aloft facts, one can cautiously accomplish that Nigerian telecom breadth offers absurd and advantageous investment opportunities to all-around investors. And putting into application 40% GSM bazaar advance bulk in the aboriginal division of this year (2008), there is abeyant for top acknowledgment on investment in this sector.

Agriculture, the ascendant breadth of Nigeria economy, engages about 70 per cent of the citizenry anon and provides about 88 percent of non-oil adopted barter earnings. It contributes about 41 per cent of the GDP of the country. The breadth recorded an all-embracing advance bulk boilerplate of 7 per cent in the endure three years, a aloft advance from beneath 3 per cent in the 90’s.

Statistically, 91 actor hectares of the country’s complete acreage breadth of 92.4 actor hectares is adjudged to be acceptable for cultivation. Approximately bisected of this cultivable acreage is finer beneath abiding and abounding crops, while the blow is covered by backwoods copse land, abiding affirmation and congenital up areas. A allotment of the states, which accept the a lot of abounding land, areas are Niger (7.6 actor hectares) and Borno (2.8 actor hectares).

Agriculture crops in Nigeria are aggregate into cereals, basis and bake-apple crops, grains legumes and added legumes, oil seeds and nuts, timberline crops, and vegetable and fruits. Governments and the Ministries of Agronomics accept fabricated acreage accretion easy, encouraged agronomical practices, continued (still extending) allurement to adopted investors and accept put in abode several incentives to activate advance in the sector. Despite, the agronomical abeyant of Nigeria is almost getting broke and this explains the disability of the country to accommodated the ever-increasing appeal for agronomical articles and her rank as 55th in the apple (although aboriginal in Africa) in acreage output.

As the apple adventures aliment crisis and assiduous acceleration in ammunition price, the country’s agronomics offers complete opportunities for adopted investors and the apple at ample to accommodate solutions to these crises. Adopted investors will accretion investments in agronomics of amoroso cane, amoroso beet, candied sorghum, starch (corn/maize), approach oil, soybeans, jatropha, and algae. These articles are advantageous as they are abeyant for biofuels, a acceptable acting for drop fuel. Presently, there is a actual top appeal for these crops from the developed economies.

Solid Mineral is addition breadth with abounding investment opportunities. Nigeria is able with abounding mineral resources. Recent activity reforms accept brought the solid minerals breadth to the fore. The accent is on auspicious massive adopted investors’ accord in this breadth as beneath than 0.5 per cent is contributed to the Gross Calm Articles from Solid mineral sector. However, the Ministry of Mines and Animate and the Ministry of state’s focal absorption in the endure one year is to strategically abode the country in a bigger position to analyze and accomplishment just seven minerals in the deluge of minerals so as to access Gross Calm Product to 5 per cent aural the next few years. The seven cardinal minerals are coal, bitumen, limestone, iron-ore, barite, gold and advance / zinc.

Coal can be begin in Enugu, Benue and Kogi. Aural these three districts 396 actor metric tones can be approved application JORC allocation criteria, while an added 1,091 actor tones of accepted and academic atramentous resourced for the areas advised is 1481 actor tones.

Knowing absolutely that development of atramentous will abetment in the ability of energy, the Government and the Ministries are agreeable adopted investors to participate actively in the assay and corruption of the mineral. Companies such as Denver Assets and Western Metals accept already committed US$10 actor and US$15 actor appropriately for two atramentous fields in the country. Addition Chinese firm, Grid Xin Yuan All-embracing Investment Aggregation that is accouterment added than bisected of China’s electricity needs is aswell in the country, advertence their absorption in the development of a atramentous acreage in Kogi State.

The Bitumen assets in the country is estimated at added than 27 billion barrels of oil agnate while iron-ore is estimated at over 5 billion accepted affluence with attendance in Kogi, Enugu, Niger, Zamfara and Kaduna States. Gold in just 10 locations is estimated at 50,000 ounces, barites 10 actor metric tones and limestone at 2.3 abundance reserves.

Talc with an estimated assets of over 100 actor tones can be begin in Niger, Osun, Kogi, Kwara, Ogun, Taraba and Kaduna States.The colour of the Nigerian crumb varies from white through milky-white to grey. The crumb industry represents one of the a lot of able sectors of the automated minerals in the world. The corruption of the all-inclusive crumb deposits in Nigeria would accordingly amuse not alone the bounded demands but aswell that of the all-embracing bazaar as well.

The civic appeal for table salt, abrasive soda, chlorine, sodium bicarbonate, sodium hydrochloric acerbic and hydrogen achromatize exceeds one actor tones. A colossal bulk of money is expended annually to acceptation these chemicals. There are alkali springs at Awe (Platue State), Enugu, and Uburu ( Imo State), while bedrock alkali is accessible in Benue State. A complete assets of 1.5 billion tones has been indicated. Government, to ascertain the breakthrough of reserves, is now accustomed out added investigations.

In the aforementioned vain, ample bentonite affluence of 700 actor tones are accessible in abounding states of alliance accessible for massive development and exploitation, over 7.5 actor tones of barite been articular in Taraba and Bauchi states, and an estimated assets of 3 billion tones of acceptable kaolinific clays has aswell been identified.

Gemstone mining has boomed in assorted locations of Plateau, Kaduna and Bauchi States for years. Some of these gemstones cover Sapphire, Ruby, Aquamarine, Emerald, Tourmaline, Topaz, Gamet, Amethyst, Zircon, and Fluorspar, which are a allotment of the best in world. Acceptable affairs abide in this breadth for applicable investment. Compassionate that this breadth requires burning investment, the Ministry has directed miners who are still in baby artisan levels to anatomy cooperatives so as to account from Apple Coffer US$10 actor assistance. Apart from this, three Nigerian Banks accept aswell accustomed solid minerals lath with armamentarium of over US$ 8 actor anniversary for the development of the sector.

Foreign investors will accretion this breadth worth-investing on as Nigerian governments accept put in abode assorted incentives and strategies for investment such as 3-5 years tax holiday, deferred ability payments, accessible assets of amount on assay and surveys, addendum of basement and accouterment of 100% adopted buying of mining concerns.

Recognizing that alone a abiding macroeconomic ambiance and a complete and alive cyberbanking arrangement can actuate the abridgement to accomplish the country’s admiration to become one of 20 bigger economies in the apple by the year 2020, on the July 6, 2004 the Federal Government through the Central Coffer of Nigeria (CBN), beneath the administering of its Governor, Professor Charles Soludo launched a 13-point ameliorate calendar to restructure, refocus and strengthen the Nigerian Cyberbanking System. To accompaniment this agenda, addition complete abiding ameliorate calendar for the Cyberbanking Arrangement (the Cyberbanking Arrangement Strategy 2020-FSS2020) was launched. The admirable objectives of these agendas are essentially getting achieved. The country cyberbanking arrangement now comprises of strong, able and internationally aggressive banks with an eye for all-around markets, a basic bazaar with accomplished allotment on investment, in dollar terms, a complete and advantageous allowance industry and added aggressive cyberbanking participants.

Gordon was appropriate in his acquiescence to accept declared Nigeria as the a lot of activating bazaar in Africa. His appearance that “foreign investors, who will be all-around abounding to counterbalance the Nigerian Cyberbanking Arrangement on the acclaim accident angle about to the all-around event, will accretion the nation’s cyberbanking breadth added absorbing to advance and accession funds from” x-rays the accuracy about the country’s cyberbanking sector.

The country’s cyberbanking arrangement is the safest and the soundest it has anytime produced in history. It is the fastest growing cyberbanking arrangement in Africa and one of the fastest in the world. In fact, the a lot of outstanding addition arise ability of the country’s dream came from this sub-sector. Bread-and-butter analysts accept empiric that it has taken Nigeria beneath than 3 years to accomplish what it took South Africa 20 years to accomplish in the breadth of banking. In a abbreviate word, a world-class cyberbanking arrangement has emerged in Nigeria.

Statistically, cyberbanking breadth contributes 10 per cent to the Gross Calm Product (GDP) and represents 60 per cent of the banal bazaar capitalization, while there was a abridgement in the amount of banks from 89 to 25, the amount of banks branches rose by 33 per cent from 3383 in 2004 to 4500 in 2007. The complete asset abject of banks rose by 104 per cent from $ 26.8 billions ( 3.21 abundance naira) in 2004 to $54.7 billion ( 6.56 abundance naira) by mid 2007; basic and affluence rose by 192 per cent from $2.72 billion (327 billion naira) to $7.98 billion ( 957 billion naira); basic capability arrangement rose by 42.6 per cent, point from 15.18 per cent to 21.6 per cent and arrangement of non-performing loans complete accommodation bigger massively by 51.3 per cent, point from 19.5 per cent to 9.5 per cent. The breadth has aswell remained one of the a lot of assisting in the country’s basic market. It was acclaimed that 13 out of 21 quoted banks on the Nigerian Banal Barter recorded allotment in balance of 100 per cent back January 2007.

According to the April 2008 copy of the African Business, (the acknowledged Pan-African Business Anniversary arise in London) 18 out of 28 West African Companies with bazaar capitalisation of added than $1 billion are Nigerian Banks. The anniversary declared that Aboriginal Coffer Nigeria Plc with bazaar assets of $7.4 billion charcoal the bigger aggregation in West Africa. Two added Nigerian banks namely Intercontinental Coffer Plc and United Coffer for Africa (UBA) abide the added and the third bigger companies in the sub-region with bazaar assets of $6.2 billion and $4.6 billion respectively.

Apparently, the ascent course of banks in the country from all break has fabricated the sub-sector actual attractive, not alone to bounded investors, but aswell to adopted investors, and in particular, adopted banks. For instance, the alliance of Regent Bank, Chartered Coffer and IBTC to anatomy IBTC Chartered Coffer admiring the absorption of the Standard Coffer Group, the bigger cyberbanking academy in Africa with a bazaar assets of $ 17.8 billion, whose accessory Stanbic Bank, aswell of South Africa has just closed a Merger accord for the latest Merger in the country, Stanbic IBTC Coffer Plc. In this direction, added adopted banks accept started authoritative enquiries with CBN of a accessible Merger or take-over.

To added actualize the opportunities the cyberbanking sub-sector offers the all-around investors, a brief attending into Intercontinental Coffer Plc will acknowledge the success of cyberbanking arrangement in the country. Intercontinental Coffer Plc is accepted to be the added bigger companies in West Africa to accept recorded a astounding advance in gross earnings, which stood at $1.45 billion ( 173.5 billion naira) in 2008. This is an access of 99 per cent over the $728 actor (87.4 billion naira) in 2007, accumulation afterwards tax grew by 102 per cent to $380 actor ( 45.6 billion naira) as adjoin $188 actor (22.6 billion) in 2007, while the basic abject rose to $1.67 billion from $1.31 billion. The coffer drop abject soared to $8.75 billion ( 1.05 abundance naira), an access of 126 per cent from $3.9 billion (468 billion naira) in 2007, while the complete assets aswell recorded a breakthrough bound to $14.2 billion (1.7 abundance naira), apery a advance of 108 per cent from $6.86 billion( 823 billion).

The coffer is aswell in cardinal affiliation with BNP Paribas, the apple arch activity costs bank, Afrexim Bank; Consign Development Canada (EDC); Accounts for Development (FMO); China Exim Bank; Export-Import of United States; All-embracing Accounts Corporation in costs projects in altered sectors of the economy. However, it is accordant to say that the success recorded by Intercontinental coffer is a acceptable archetype of the Nigerian banks’ backbone and prospects, and a affidavit to opportunities accessible to all-around investors in the country’ cyberbanking sector.

Apart from the above, Nigerian Basic Bazaar offers applicable opportunities as it is positioned to advice companies to accession capital, and to accomplish top allotment on investment. Its complete bazaar assets has developed by over 4000 per cent to $100 billion (12 abundance naira) in March, 2008, up from $2.39 billion (287 billion naira ) in August 1999.Among arising markets, the Nigerian Basic bazaar charcoal one of the a lot of applicable in agreement of allotment on equity. Historically, the bazaar has delivered 28 per cent returns.

Insurance industry is not an absolution to this advance and development the country’s cyberbanking breadth is witnessing. Although there are few atramentous spots on the authoritative handling, the industry has appropriately recorded success in their reforms and operations. With the arrival of able-bodied capital, allowance companies are now faced with the challenges of carrying allotment to shareholders, maximizing bulk and exploring across markets. Their attendance can be acquainted in countries like Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Sao Tome, South Africa a allotment of others.

Although Goldman Sachs’ address blue-blooded “New Bazaar Analyst” with affair amount 08/09 arise on March 13, 2008 (cited in the Thisday bi-weekly March 19,2008) posited that Nigeria is a bigger abridgement than South Africa, All-embracing Monetary Armamentarium (IMF) arise that Nigeria and South Africa got abutting to 50 per cent of the $53 billion clandestine disinterestedness and debt breeze to Sub-Saharan Africa in 2007. This underscores the growing aplomb of All-embracing bodies and adopted investors in country’s cyberbanking breadth and abridgement at large.

Furthermore, Fitch Rating Agency and the Standard and Poor rated Nigeria BB-(minus) in the breadth of complete credit, top in development of bounded bill debt market, and low in the areas of debt to GDP arrangement and inflation. The opportunities for advance in Nigeria cyberbanking breadth are still able as the basal fundamentals alive the advance are still present. All these and more, position the cyberbanking breadth and the country at ample as a arch and a lot of activating bazaar in Africa and present applicable investment opportunities to all-around investors.

Needless to say that the opportunities presented aloft are archetypal examples and an affirmation of opportunities apprehension adopted investors in added sectors of the economy.

Nigeria is the bigger ambassador and exporter of oil in Africa (although afresh placed added abaft Angola in the latest OPEC address as a aftereffect of Niger Delta Crisis) with a assembly of 2.5 actor barrels and aloft a day. Besides, the Nigeria is the 7th world’s gas assets holder and the accomplished afire nation in the world, with the abeyant to become a aloft amateur in LNG export. It has anniversary gas flares’ accommodation to accomplish over 12000 MW of electricity bare to activate the advance of any economy. Although it currently flares an boilerplate of 1.2 TCF of gas annually, the breadth has the abeyant to accomplish abounding allotment on investment.

One of the greatest opportunities apprehension adopted investors is Complete Acreage / Property. For instance, Lagos Metropolis with a citizenry of about 18 actor has accomplished mega city-limits status. The Accompaniment has one of the accomplished urbanization ante in the apple according to the Apple Bank. Consequently, there is an clamorous appeal for apartment delivery, which has apprenticed the addition of the New Clandestine Acreage Developers Scheme. Beneath the programme, the government will accomplish ample accoutrements of acreage alignment from 1 to 25 hectares accessible to accumulated organizations able of adventure development and accumulation of apartment units. Such alignment accept to about authenticate that they accept the cyberbanking accommodation and abstruse ability to bear superior and affordable apartment units.

Among added sectors of the abridgement that adopted investors will accretion applicable and worth-investing on are Transport, Activity and Entertainment, Tourism, Ability and Steel, Consign Processing Zones, Privatization. And accessible annal acknowledge that the bulk of allotment in these sectors is as top as in the sectors discussed above.

Apart from the opportunities mentioned aloft which our appointment is strategically positioned to aerate opportunities for the account of -to-be investors. We aswell activity consultancy casework in the areas of accepted management, manufacturing, marketing, accounts and accounting, personnel, assay and development, packaging, administration, all-embracing operation, specialized casework and added value-adding services. And our cardinal affiliation with civic and all-embracing companies put us in position to bear superior account and top allotment on investment.

Nevertheless, there accept been fears aloft by all-embracing observers, agents and bodies that Nigeria is a high-risk nation for investment and added business transactions. This development is attributed to security, assorted taxation, epileptic ability supply, bad anchorage and poor plan environment.

It may arise that accomplishing business in Nigeria is arduous because of the activities of a few capricious Nigerians who are unscrupulous. But such are artlessly assuming of animal nature; as it can be begin anywhere abroad in the world. It accept to be said absolutely that the apple has been biased in their acumen and assay of Nigeria aegis issue. There accept never been agitator attacks, suicide bombings or kidnapping until afresh if the affair of Niger Delta came on board.

Niger Delta region-the antecedent of nation’s oil wealth- has become an breadth of abiding tension, agitation, and recently, militancy. However, a assemblage of factors such as ecology accident by oil exploitation, abortion to advance the region, abridgement of job opportunities and faculty of abysmal denial from the low allotment of ancestry acquirement accruing to the states in the region, has led to the present situation. Acknowledging their situation, the Federal Government has organised a Summit, to be chaired by Professor Ibrahim Gambari, the United Nations Beneath Secretary General, to accommodate abiding band-aid to the crisis. Frankly speaking, Nigeria is a safe and investment-friendly abode and Nigerians are all-around and industrious.

Cyber Abomination is addition alarming crime, which generally put-off -to-be investors from involving or advance in the business opportunities in Nigeria. This abomination was in fact alien into the country by expatriates. It has never been allotment of Nigeria culture. It is perpetrated by a few area of the population. Their operations are agitated out via Internet and their targets are humans who transact business via the medium. They affectation as government admiral and sometimes as businessmen with United Kingdom character who accord in agenda products. About the account of their tricks and operations is not exhaustive. With the advice of Bread-and-butter and Cyberbanking Abomination Commission (EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices and Related Commission (ICPC), and added Anti-Criminal Agencies, Cyber Abomination and their perpetrators are beneath ascendancy and disappearing.

The admirable cold of the present administration, as encapsulated in VISION 2020, is to accomplish Nigeria a aloft automated and bread-and-butter power, and one of the 20 bigger economies in the Apple by the year 2020 by accouterment enabling investment and business ambiance and best aegis for alive accord of bounded and particularly, adopted investors. The ability of these aspirations had abreast the abolitionist and businesslike reforms advised to access the affability of Nigeria’s investment opportunities and advance the growing aplomb in the economy. In this direction, the Federal Government has provided incentives and strategies for investment such as 3-5 years tax holiday, deferred royalty, accessible assets of amount and accouterment of infrastructures such as alley and electricity, just to acknowledgment a few.

African abridgement is witnessing the arch advance in 30 years; no doubt, Nigeria is one of the aloft contributors to this development. A lot of commentators accept empiric that the opportunities for business and investment in the country attending added aflush with GDP advance of 7 per cent in 2007 and 13 per cent in the next 12 years. The All-embracing Monetary Armamentarium (IMF) anticipation of 9 per cent advance bulk for Nigeria in 2008 (which is added to India 10 per cent and advanced of China 8 per cent) lays acceptance to their observations.

Furthermore, the access in Adopted Complete Investment, the access of bunch companies, the able cyberbanking sector, the favourable and amazing business environment, the government support, the abounding accustomed resources, and the citizenry of over 140 actor people, a allotment of others, put Nigeria in a allusive ( and possibly absolute) advantage over added African countries.

Just as it is difficult to avoid China as a bazaar in the all-around arena, (one out of every 5 bodies in the apple is Chinese) so is it actual difficult to avoid Nigeria as a bazaar in Africa (one out of every three bodies in Africa is Nigerian). With a citizenry of over 140 actor humans and its bread-and-butter potential, Nigeria still charcoal Africa a lot of important market.


Unlike China and India, African economy(developing economies) is yet to be chip into the apple economy. This is as a aftereffect of apathetic bulk of affiliation and globalization at which the abridgement is getting anchored into the all-around bread-and-butter and cyberbanking system. Consequently, developing economies will alone ache a bound cyberbanking appulse from the acclaim crunch. However, this is not to say that developing economies are in abreast and absolutely chargeless from the crisis.

To admission a point, this cardboard will abide to use Nigerian abridgement for its assay as it represents a archetype of a developing abridgement with accurate and ample variables.

According to the address from a afresh assured Bankers Committee Meeting, which concluded on October 20 th, 2008 , the Nigerian banks are safe as they accomplish at 22 per cent basic capability ratio( 14 per cent aloft the apple 8 per cent requirement) and the cyberbanking breadth is far from getting afflicted by the accepted all-around cyberbanking crisis. The address aswell posits that any bail-out arrangement is accidental as the bearings that acceptable bail-out schemes in developed economies- poor superior assets and abundant accommodation losses consistent from acknowledgment to clumsily collateralised mortgage loans- is absent in Nigeria. To accentuate its point, the address acclaimed that, as the Complete Adopted Investment in Nigerian banks is analogously low and the banks affiliation with their adopted counterparts is about fixed, the appulse of the crisis will be bound and indirect.


The words of Mr. Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the Managing Director of All-embracing Monetary Fund, at a affair in Washington D.C are the bend stones of the absolute thoughts of this paper. He fatigued as follow:

We accommodated at an extra-ordinarily difficult time- a time of ambiguity and insecurity, with a crisis that those fears advance us abroad from- not towards- a added across-the-board and acceptable globalization….At its best, multilateralism is a agency for analytic problems a allotment of countries, with the accumulation at the table all-around to yield effective activity together. If multilateralism is dysfunctional, globalization can be a Babel of Tower, with aggressive civic interests colliding to account none. The new multilateralism, suiting our times, is acceptable to be a adjustable network, not anchored system. It needs to aerate the strengths of abutting actors, accessible and private, bartering and civilian association Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). The multilateralism accept to account accompaniment sovereignties while analytic commutual problems that transcend borders…The clandestine breadth cannot restore aplomb on its own. Macroeconomic activity measures by governments cannot restore aplomb on their own. Piecemeal measures on cyberbanking markets will not restore aplomb on their own. What will restore aplomb is government action which is clear, complete and accommodating a allotment of countries..The apple accept to act quickly, angrily and cooperatively to accommodate the advancing cyberbanking and bread-and-butter downturn.

Thus, the position of this cardboard is that the aplomb will alone be adequate if “government action which is clear, complete and cooperative” is complemented with investment in developing economies with beneath or no crisis appulse as “flexible multilateralism” and accommodating and acceptable globalization is band-aid that apparel our time, not” bread-and-butter isolationism”.

What It Takes to Create an Award-Winning Business

14 Strategies We Attribute to Our Recent Business Excellence Award

Out of the blue, I received an email from the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce one day notifying me that we were nominated for a 2016 Business Excellence award.

Say what?

Once I got past my shock and disbelief that they must have the wrong Susan… it began to sink in that someone out there thought we were worthy enough of this nomination. Wow, what an honour!

Part of the nomination process consisted of a 30-minute interview in front of a 3-judge panel. Imagine being forced to actually brag about yourself for a half an hour! Talk about squirming in my seat!

Fast forward to last week where the awards ceremony took place. Much to my relief, our category was up first so I could relax the rest of the evening.

To be honest, I wasn’t all that anxious – I knew the odds of winning was only 1 in 7 so I waited patiently for the winner’s name to be announced, not at all expecting it to be us.

But it was! We were declared the winner!

Say WHAT???

Shock and disbelief once again came over me as I took a moment to grasp what just happened. Walking to the stage was quite the blur but I managed to do it without tripping up the stairs to get our award.

In the aftermath of winning this wonderful recognition, I reflected some more about that judge’s interview and how they deemed us the winner from the other worthy nominees in our category.

With that in mind, I wanted to share some of the attributes I feel helped us win this prestigious award. Without further ado, here’s what it took for me to create an award-winning business:

1) Be Passionate About What You Do

We are not the first business I’ve created; there’s been plenty others ranging from creating craft pieces to faux finish painting. But no matter what I did, I was very passionate about it.

Don’t waste your time trying to run a business just to make money. You’re going to tire of it very quickly and it will be harder to make sales.

But when you’re passionate about what you do, others will immediately see that and will be drawn to you like a magnet.

2) Love Working With the People You Serve and Offer Exceptional Customer Service

One of the truest joys I receive is the knowing how much we are able to help a new business owner get their online presence up and running. Being a part of their joy at seeing their dream materialize into something tangible gives me just as much joy.

If you avoid answering the phone or responding to emails because you dread having to talk to a client, then you need to adjust your marketing so you attract the right people to work with.

If you don’t love who you’re working with, then it’s hard to establish a successful business that needs to cater to your clients by making customer service a #1 priority. And that means answering the phone, responding to emails in a prompt manner, and treating every person as if they were your only client. And when you’re attracting your perfect ideal client, then this should be easy to do.

Make your business about them, not you. Just remember, if you had no clients, then you’d have no business.

3) Know Your Stuff

Before even thinking about starting a web development/digital marketing business, I ensured I got the education I needed first. I attended the Vancouver Film School in their Multi-Media program and then later earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a concentration in Computer Information Systems (with an A+ GPA).

Not to mention the countless online courses I’ve taken over the years to ensure my skills are kept up-to-date with this ever changing industry.

Sadly, I see a lot of entrepreneurs wanting to start a business with not a lot of skills or experience under their belt and then they wonder why they’re struggling.

Reading a book or taking one on-line course is probably not enough to reach award-winning status. But if you’re passionate about building a successful business, you’ll find a way to ensure you become as qualified as needed.

4) Be Committed

Is working 15 hour days, 6-7 days a week committed enough? Yep, that’s what Daniel and I do every week. We have to in order to fulfil points 2 and 3 above.

It takes a lot of time and effort to ensure your clients are taken care of properly. You also need a “do whatever it takes” level of commitment.

You might not need to work such long hours as us and trust me, we’re continually working towards lessening that kind of volume but until then, we are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure our business is successful. Are you?

5) Be Consistent

Consistency shows up in many forms when running a successful business. For me, it’s being consistent with my message, my brand, my Social Media presence, my newsletters, my team management, and the level of quality we bring to our clients.

Do I miss sometimes? Absolutely. But being consistent in these areas are very important to me, and I do what needs to be done in order to show up the best I can for my team and our clients.

Without consistency, it’s hard to create brand ambassadors (such as the ones who nominate you for an award), loyal team members, and a steady flow of clients.

Whatever you have decided to commit to, be consistent at it and you’ll be amazed at how things start to flow your way.

6) Surround Yourself With a Dedicated and Knowledgeable Team

I started off as a one-woman show. Because of my educational background, I was able to do the design, build and marketing of a website quite easily. I’m what you would call a “generalist”, someone who knows a lot of about a lot of things and is a specialist in a few areas.

But my one-woman show was not going to create a successful business. Especially in this technologically-driven industry. It quickly became apparent my skillset was only going to get me so far.

So my first hire was someone who could offset my biggest weakness. Warren was a student at UFV and applied for my part time programmer position. He was a perfect complement to our company and the moment he came on board, I was relieved of having to do all the site builds myself. I could then take that time and focus on building the business instead.

It’s tough to try and do everything yourself when it comes to running a business. Sure, there are expenses involved in hiring but if you hire smart, keep an eye on your bottom line, and know when to let go of those that aren’t serving you best, your business will escalate far quicker than if you try to struggle with everything yourself.

This topic is worthy of a whole article itself so I encourage you to read How to Take a Solo-Entrepreneurship to the Next Level for more.

7) Have Honesty, Authenticity and Gratitude be a Part of Your Daily Life

It’s sad I even need to list this as an attribute but I’ve been in business long enough to know not everyone adheres to these principles.

To me, this is a no-brainer – I’m not certain I could live any other way?

But judging from the stories I hear from new clients about how they were treated by their previous web developer, it sounds like many people need to be reminded of this.

No business will thrive without honesty and integrity. And a little secret: gratitude will not only make your business thrive, but your whole life too. Give it a try and see what I mean.

8) Persevere

Every business, including ours, has its ups and downs. The key to success is to not let those “downs” overcome your enthusiasm. Pick yourself back up, learn from whatever lesson there was to be learned, and keep moving forward.

If we had quit when we only had $20 credit left on our credit cards at Christmas time just a handful of years ago, we wouldn’t be award winners now!

9) Invest in Your Business

Building the company has been one investment after another. It never ends really.

There’s always something that needs to be worked on. Here’s a short list of my recommendations on where you need to invest in your business:

a.Branding & Website



d.Building a Team

10) Understand You’re Running a Business, Not a Hobby.

I think this is an important distinction to make and one many entrepreneurs aren’t differentiating.

I’ve always looked at our company as a business and that’s mostly due to my business mind and having a business degree.

But for those that simply are passionate about something and have a dream to make money off of it, it’s hard to know exactly HOW to turn that dream into a business.

They end up blindly doing what they think they should be doing, all by themselves, in order to save money (or not spend money they don’t have) and hope for the best.

If this sounds familiar, I’m adding another business investment to consider as your top priority: A business coach or mentor. ASAP. Otherwise, you’ll probably end up just running a hobby.

11) Set up a Systemized Business Structure

I’ve worked with a lot of clients over the years. Some amaze me at how organized and systemized they are. And others, well, not so much.

Having a systemized business structure in place is the only reason I haven’t gone insane with my daily workload.

Here’s the tools we use to be more organized, efficient and less stressed.

12) Get Comfortable With Sales

Sales. It’s a dirty word for many entrepreneurs and business owners alike. Me too. I hate to think of myself as a “sales person” but at the end of the day, if we’re not selling our wares, we don’t have a business.

Now that’s not to say you need to become a pushy, in-your-face predator. Far from it.

Remember attribute #1 about being passionate? That’s what you need. People will trust your passion and will respond to it. But be careful, sometimes passion can be too intense and will turn people away.

Find your sweet spot as to what resonates with your ideal clients and keep working at it. But do embrace the fact you’re selling your wares and learn some strategies that fit with your personality and comfort level that will work.

13) Give Back

Giving back is an imperative attribute to have when building a successful business. We give back in several ways, here’s some ideas to consider that we do:

-Offer discounted prices for non-profits

-Volunteer your services to community groups

-Send cash donations to worthy charities you believe in

-Make purchases that support worthy causes

-Donate door prizes and/or silent auction items for fund raising activities

-And support your own clients whenever you can

14) Be Accessible

When new clients approach me due to being disenchanted with their existing web developer or marketer, the most often complaint I hear is they can never get a hold of the person. Either they take forever to respond to an email or never answer their phone.

I think I’m going to write a book on how NOT to run a successful business based on this alone. It boggles my mind when I consistently hear stories like this. How are these people keeping a business going with such poor service and accessibility?

I have a policy to answer emails within a day of receipt. I often exceed that policy but sometimes the volume is too much and I get delayed in responding. Same thing with the phone. If we’re available to answer, we do so. If we’re not, we’ll call the person back right away.

Being accessible provides peace of mind to our clients; they know we care enough about them to take care of their needs in a timely manner. ’nuff said.

There you have it. My honest take on what created the company to be an award-winning business. Maybe I need to write a book about this because, honestly, I could have added more but, it’s coming into the 15th hour on this Sunday night of working so I’ll leave it at that.
