The Nigeria Mining Roadshow in Australia 2018 was a pioneer two-leg event designed to bring Nigeria mining decision-makers and their Australian counterparts in exclusive meetings in Melbourne and Perth respectively. The event was targeted to introduce mining opportunities in Nigeria to Australian stakeholders and give both parties a unique opportunity to meet, interact and establish connections.

The Roadshow also gave vent to Nigeria mining regulatory frameworks, entry strategies and Government-backed incentives for new investors.
