    Abstract

    The purpose of this note1 is to raise awareness of Nigeria’s potential as an African offshoring hub, and it is aimed primarily toward policy makers, potential private sector investors, and development partners. What can Nigeria do to take advantage of the benefits of global trade in services; how can the country brand itself as an offshoring destination for international investors; and what government policies are required to ensure that Nigeria plays a role in the growing ICT offshoring sector?
