The Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) has said that it is profiling investment opportunities across sectors in Nigeria.

The Director, Investment Promotion of the Commission, Mr. Adeshina Emmanuel made this known at a recent media briefing by the Commission stating that such profiled investment opportunities are used in matchmaking their promoters with prospective investors.

Speaking on NIPC’s mandate, Mr. Emmanuel stated that the Commission has four principal functions – projecting an attractive investment image of the country, promoting investment opportunities across sectors, facilitation of investment into the country and intervening on behalf of investors if they have a challenge.

According to him, there were two broad approaches to reaching out to investors; through business and investment forums (BIFs) and through a targeted investment promotion drive.
