The reactionary attitude that this current government adopts to everyone makes it difficult for trade inside and outside the country,” merchant Emeka Onyekachi told the Africa Report. It describes the bilateral and multilateral trade agreements to which that country belongs, including with the United States. Includes websites and other resources that allow U.S. companies to get more information about how they can use these agreements. Adedayo Bakare, an economist and investment researcher at Afrinvest, said most of the federal government`s and central bank`s trade policy was protectionist and would prevent investors from entering the country in the long term. For Onyekachi, the loss of access to the ECOWAS market, where it normally operates, does not mean for any reason to respect Nigeria or to want to do business with Nigeria.
While some see the free trade agreement with Kenya as a way for Washington to counter Chinese influence in East Africa, others say Nigeria is excluded because it is not really a good trading partner. After the imminent expiration of the African Growth and Opportunity Act in 2025, which allows many African countries to export goods to the United States without quotas or tariffs, African nations must negotiate new agreements with the United States. After a successful 15-year contract term, the law was renewed for a further ten years in 2015. “Nigeria`s import substitution policy and the closure of land borders send negative signals to investors and countries that say Nigeria is not open to trade,” Bakare said. Perhaps the biggest indicator that Nigeria is not happy about trade agreements and trade with its neighbours was its delay in signing the AfCFTA. The AfCFTA has still not been ratified by the Nigerian parliament. Open market access facilitates the purchase of Nigerian products in the United States at competitive prices. It also promotes economic integration between the two countries, strengthens trade relations and thus continuously improves the facilitation of activity in Nigeria.

International investment agreements (AI) are divided into two types: (1) bilateral investment agreements and (2) investment contracts. A bilateral investment agreement (ILO) is an agreement between two countries to promote and protect investments made by investors from the countries concerned in the territory of the other country. The vast majority of IDu are bits. The category of contracts with investment rules (TIPs) includes different types of investment contracts that are not BITs. There are three main types of TIPs: 1) global economic contracts that contain commitments that are often included in ILOs (. B, for example, a free trade agreement with an investment chapter); 2. contracts with limited investment provisions (for example. B, investment creation or free transfer of investment-related funds; and 3) contracts that contain only “framework clauses,” such as.
