The Swiss-Nigerian Business Council was officially registered in September 2017.

It was founded with the support of the Swiss Ambassador to Nigeria Mr. Eric Mayoraz and the Consul General in Lagos Mr. Yves Nicolet.

We organize workshops, business luncheons, seminars, trade fairs, trade mission, members' evening and other such activities that aid trade and investment.

Our membership base range from the small and medium enterprises to world-leading multinational corporations.

Our vision is to be the foremost channel of trade and commerce between Nigeria and Switzerland.

Our mission is to continuously encourage and promote mutually beneficial trade relations between Nigeria and Switzerland.



In March 2018, the Swiss Federal Councillor on Economic Affairs, H.E. Johann Schneider-Amman, led a business delegation to Nigeria for a familiarization tour to Nigeria's investment environment.

During the course of this business delegation, the Councillor Schneider-Amman joined one of the regular SNBC breakfast to meet its members and encourage further development of bilateral commerce between the two countries.

Pictures of the event can be consulted by clicking on the links below.
