Private Enterprise Development in Africa: The Case of Nigeria

The goal of this study was to facilitate research into linkages, if any, between large, medium and small firms in Nigeria in order to understand their nature and dynamics. The study specifically attempted to explore whether large, medium and small firms are complementary or competitive in the Nigerian business environment, whether this helps or inhibits private enterprise, and whether larger firms expand at the expense of smaller firms thus impeding the survival and growth of smaller firms. The second research question focussed on linkages between foreign and domestic firms in order to shade light on the potential of technology and skills transfer from foreign to domestic firms and vice versa and assess whether there are opportunities for symbiotic linkages.
