In the wake of the recession in the country, some individuals and corporate entities have devised a way of ensuring the country gets back on track by organizing an exhibition where Made-in-Nigeria Products will be showcased in Mali. Minex I, which kicks off from the 03- 05 November, 2016 at Palais des Sports in Bamako, Mali, is the maiden edition of the made-in Nigeria exhibition in Mali.

Further information and registration procedures can found at the website:

The fair, "Made-in Nigeria Exhibition (MINEX)", is organized in order revitalize the once existing trade relations between Mali and Nigeria. Its aim is primarily to promote "Made-in Nigeria" products in Mali, explore areas of common interest that could be mutually beneficial to both countries and create opportunities for trade and cultural exchanges between the two sister-nations. Areas of interest include machineries/vehicles, textiles, petrochemicals, beauty products and accessories, processed food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, agricultural and farming chemicals and information technology/service.

The fair, therefore, will:
1.  Bring Nigerian companies, businessmen and entrepreneurs to Mali in order for them to be acquainted with the country and eventually find new potential customers and partners for their products and services.
2.  Create opportunities for Malian enterprises to discover available solutions and other numerous opportunities in Nigeria, particularly in the areas of commerce, industry, agriculture, engineering, etc. and encourage them to visit Nigeria for business transactions.
3. Introduce Nigerian investors to economic potentials of Mali and encourage them to invest in Mali.

Minex 2016 is business made easier and ensuring that goods and services produced in Nigeria have a voice beyond their localities.

MINEX is the maiden edition of the made in Nigeria exhibition in Mali geared towards areas that will be mutually beneficial to the Nigerian and the Malian economies, coming up between 3rd and 5th of November, 2016.
