Indonesian Companies Arrive Lagos.

Having heard of the acceptance of Indonesian products in Nigeria, based on the successful market entry of Indomie instant noodles and Nutri-C flavored drinks, (both market leaders in their sub-sectors), Indonesian companies are coming in droves.

Sixteen Indonesian companies have arrived in Lagos to participate in the Lagos International Trade Fair, 2009 edition. We wish them good luck!
