The Nigeria High Commission

Dear Visitor,

 

I wish to welcome you to the official website of Nigeria High Commission, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Our Website will provide you with comprehensive information about the activities of the High Commission in enhancing Nigeria’s national interests as well as promoting cordial relations with the government and people of Malaysia.

The Federal Republic of Nigeria, with a population of about 170 million, occupying an area of 923,768 sq.km, is the most populated and largest economy in Africa. It is a federation, comprising 36 states, a federal capital in Abuja and 774 Local Government Councils. In addition to its vast population, Nigeria is blessed with significant agricultural, mineral, marine and forest resources. Its multiple vegetation zones, plentiful rain, surface water and underground water resources and moderate climatic extremes, allow for production of diverse food and cash crops. Over 60 per cent of Nigeria’s population is involved in the production of food crops, such as cassava, maize, rice, yams, beans and legumes. Others include soya, sorghum, ginger, onions, tomatoes, melons and vegetable. The main cash crops are cocoa, cotton, groundnuts, oil palm and rubber.

Nigeria and Malaysia have been enjoying diplomatic friendship since early 1965 when the late Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Nigeria's first Prime Minister, became a good friend of one of Malaysia's post-independence leaders, Tunku Abdul Rahman. But having achieved strong political relations, Nigeria and Malaysia have now concentrated on the economic and trade sectors. A Nigeria-Malaysia Business Council exists between the two countries. In 2015, the trade value between Nigeria and Malaysia stood at $766.8 million with Malaysia's main export to Nigeria comprising petroleum products, palm oil and palm-based products, machineries and processed food while Nigeria's main export to Malaysia is liquefied natural gas, iron ore, metal scrap and agricultural goods. Nigeria emerged as Malaysia's second largest trading partner among African countries, after South Africa. Around 456 Nigerian officials also benefited from various capacity building programmes under the Malaysia Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP), and Nigeria has become the largest source of African students in Malaysia.

The High Commission is encouraging private sector to invest in Nigeria and it has put in place measures to support efforts by Malaysian companies willing to invest in Nigeria. Additionally, visas are issued to business people intending to travel to Nigeria provided they meet the necessary requirements.
 
Thank you.
Nurudeen Muhammed
