Mayor Sylvester Turner Leads Houston Delegation on a Trade Mission to West Africa.
Mayor Tuner stats, “Nigeria’s position as an energy powerhouse aligns perfectly with Houston as the energy capital of the world. We share many synergies, which is why we have corporations like Chevron and Haliburton joining us.”
The mission will focus on further strengthening the existing political ties between all three countries and Houston by:
- Finding new economic opportunities for Houston companies in Africa, and to find opportunities for these international companies to do business in Houston.
- Continue to grow the cultural and civic engagement between Houston and Africa
- Establish consulates in Houston for all three countries.
- Direct flights between Houston and Nigeria
