The International Trade Administration is accepting through Jan. 10 applications for private-sector members to participate in the newly established U.S.-Nigeria Commercial and Investment Dialogue.

The CID has two key objectives: encouraging and promoting deeper commercial and investment ties between the U.S. and Nigerian private sectors, and examining key regulatory reforms and policy elements that can help attract U.S. businesses and investors. The CID’s five current key areas of focus are infrastructure, agriculture, digital economy, investment, and regulatory reform.

The ITA particularly seeks applicants who are active executives (CEOs, executive chairs, presidents, or those with a comparable level of responsibility), although for large companies a person having substantial responsibility for the company's commercial activities in Nigeria will also be considered. Members are not required to be U.S. citizens but may not be registered as a foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. Additionally, no member may represent a company that is majority owned or controlled by a foreign government entity or entities.
