DEG Representative Office Lagos | Nigeria

Nigeria is one of the largest economies on the African continent. The country generates around one quarter of the economic output of sub-Saharan Africa. At the same time there are ongoing challenges such as the necessary economic diversification and structural reforms. In recent years, a growing middle class with increasing purchasing power has developed in Africa’s most populous country.

DEG offers customised advice and tailored financing solutions particularly to medium-sized enterprises. In Nigeria DEG currently invests primarily in the financial sector, in infrastructure and in the manufacturing industry.

DEG on site for you

In 2019 DEG opened a representative office in Lagos, Nigeria’s economic hub, which, as a regional office, is responsible for DEG activities in West Africa.

In addition DEG, together with its partner bank Access Bank and the local German Chamber of Commerce Abroad (AHK), has opened a German Desk, a central point of contact for German SMEs and their clients. Since 2018 it has been offering one-stop banking services and financing opportunities.
