Nigeria is the largest African country in terms of population, economy, and oil production and export. It is also the 3rd largest trading partner and the 2nd largest export market of China in Africa, as well as a major partner of China in implementing the “Belt and Road” initiative.
Among the many Chinese enterprises stationed in Nigeria, China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (hereinafter referred to as "CCECC") is one with the longest history, the richest expertise, and the highest recognition degree. As a Chinese pioneer in entering global market, CCECC has undertaken many major projects in Nigeria, all being highly spoken of by clients.
In 2017, harnessing its powerful strength, CCECC undertook the airport projects of Abuja (capital), Lagos (economic and trade center), Harcourt (major city), and Kano of Nigeria. To materialize these projects, CCECC chose H3C as the supplier of internet products and solutions used in airports.
