Nigeria-Poland Bilateral Trade: Identifying New Trade Opportunities
The bilateral trade relationship between Nigeria and Poland is being examined in this paper, specifically for the period 1995 to 2012. It was attempted in this study to provide a detailed description of Nigeria-Poland trade relationship and also identify realistic trade opportunities for Nigeria. In particular, it investigated the dynamics of Poland’s world import demand vis-à- vis Nigeria’s actual and potential export products. Furthermore, it specifies demand and supply constraints to exporting. Two models were instrumental to the analyses in this paper: Decision Support Model (DSM) and Growth Identification Framework (GIFF). While the former provides a guide for the identification of product-specific export opportunities for Nigeria, the later identifies sectors where the country may have comparative advantage.
