OUR ORIGINS

A General Meeting of US Companies doing business in Nigeria in May 2005, unanimously endorsed the need for an American Business Council (ABC) which, operating like a “think tank”, will focus on policy issues and practical implementation steps in support of Nigerian public and private sector leadership as well as ongoing reform initiatives in the country. It is designed to bring ABC’s Nigerian based resources combined with the US support, to bear on selected issues and reform initiatives that show potential for WIN/WIN results in Nigeria’s quest for stable economic development. It is envisioned that ABC will make a significant impact on the investment environment and Nigeria’s future economic development.
