Adam Smith International is an award-winning professional services business that delivers real impact, value and lasting change through projects supporting economic growth and government reform internationally. Our reputation as a global leader has been built on the positive results our projects have achieved in many of the world’s most challenging environments.
ASI’s regional office for West Africa is Abuja, Nigeria. Eighteen ASI Managers, 70 other staff, over 300 Associates and 350 field workers operate in Nigeria where we deliver projects for DFID, UK Home Office, EU and World Bank. The West Africa team has a large project portfolio and it is growing quickly, with two new projects added within the last two months and an interesting pipeline of new opportunities.
West African countries are growing at a faster rate than the Asian tigers. In 2013, Ghana was the world’s fastest growing economy with a growth rate of 13% and today Ivory Coast is the second fastest growing nation. Nigeria is Africa’s largest economy and is forecast to be the third most populous country in the world within little more than a generation. The global Sustainable Development Goals will be won or lost in Nigeria, making it a highly stimulating place to be based.
Adam Smith International has been operating in Nigeria for 14 years, playing a leading role in its development.
