A major power and the third ranking in GDP, Nigeria is home to the largest population on the African continent (160 million people) and holds plenty of natural resources: oil and natural gas. Nigeria is also the largest country of exporting petroleum in Africa. There are large income disparities within the country, and the lack of development of social infrastructure prevents of improving living conditions and promoting business investment. Effectively combining the schemes of technical cooperation, ODA loans and grant aid, JICA will support Nigeria on: 1) realizing human security and achieving the MDGs, and 2) providing basic infrastructure for sustainable economic growth that is balanced.
