Foreign investment into Nigeria has increased steadily since 2010, according to greenfield investment monitor fDi Markets. The number of tracked investments has increased in the three-year period from 37 to 50 to 60. The trend looks set to continue during 2013, with 10 projects recorded in the first two months. Job creation has also reached a new high. In 2012, 295 new jobs were created as a result of FDI, an increase of 30% from the previous year.

As Nigeria’s economy continues to grow and the government targets more FDI by offering incentives, the number of companies investing in Nigeria is set to increase. fDi Markets data shows a 37% increase in the number of companies investing in the country between 2010 and 2012.
