Abstract: International trade has broadened possible opportunities available to countries for upgrading economic activities, including the development of manufacturing. Nigeria, since the mid-1980s began implementing liberal trade reforms, and by 2008 adopted significantly the ECOWAS Common External Tariff (CET) thus, simplifying the tariff structure and improving the transparency and predictability of country's trade policies. These have significantly exposed manufacturing activities to the international market.
