Chinese Automobile, Changan, Targets Nigeria for Latest SUVs

With the recent ban on importation of used vehicles through the land borders in Nigeria, Chinese automobile manufacturer, Changan Automobile (Group) Co. Limited has unleashed their CS75 SUV.

Changan recently movined their motor assembly plant to Lagos.

Nigeria is however considered the biggest market in Africa with about 11.7 million vehicles estimated to be in the country and about 6.8 million of these being commercial vehicles.

Changan’s move comes within the space that despite automobile companies investing a whooping ₦2 trillion to build assembly plants in Nigeria yet there has been no ROI – Returns On Investment so far.

Also, Changan now joins the likes of JAC, King Long amongst others in the Nigerian market which implies that more companies are beginning to target Nigeria’s large population for investment, and job creation in the manufacturing sector.

How Nigeria Can Attain Sustainable and Inclusive Growth – Dangote

Billionaire businessman Aliko Dangote has identified what Nigeria needs to drive sustainable and inclusive growth.

Dangote, who is Africa’s richest man, said this via a poat on his twitter handle on Friday.

He said, “Nigeria has one of the largest domestic markets with a population of over 200 million people.

“We need to drive sustainable and inclusive growth through industrialization, economic diversification and import substitution, creating jobs and driving economic prosperity.”

Dangote had on Wednesday aired his views about the Nigerian economy at a Roundtable session with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, with the theme “Going for Growth 2.0.”

He said when he read that the Nigerian Customs collected N1.35trn import duties last year, it means the economy isn’t working.

“If the economy is working, the Customs shouldn’t collect that much money, it is the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) that should,” he said.
