There are 11 states in the South East and South South regions of Nigeria. As an economic unit, this block has a GDP of $111B – creating an Economic Corridor that is one of the biggest in Africa. This corridor also hosts the Oil/Gas industry that has been the mainstay of the Nigerian Economy for the past 50years.
Its small landmass means that there are 75million people in an urbanized small landmass that are connected. There are at least 10 midsize cities in the block and tens of tertiary cities, creating a connected block that is reachable by road in about 3hrs end to end. Its connection to the Atlantic Ocean makes it easy for the development of an integrated transportation system that includes roads, ports, rivers, and airports, both local and international.
DevEast -is a Non-profit Economic advocacy project championing the sustainable development of South Eastern Nigeria. We will converge experts across the South-South/South-East on Friday March 12, 2021 to discuss Eastern Nigeria Economic Corridor.
The webinar will help us discuss, project the region’s opportunities and attract investors.
