The commodity groups are (a) food imports, (b) investment goods imports, (c) petroleum imports and (d) intermediate goods imports. Released as part of their Transforming World Atlas, the report outlines the risk posed by a volatile global commodities market. With so many African economies dependent on exports of oil, metals and minerals, the impact of the commodities slump is.

The richest African country boasts raw materials and incredibly fertile soil across its vast landscape. It should be no surprise that Nigeria’s main exports are dominated by them.
