Mission and Vision

The National Automotive Design and Development Council’s vision and mission are sub-sects of the Federal Ministry of Trade and Investment vision, which is “to transform Nigeria into a modern industrialised nation” and mission statement is “to design and implement policies, programmes and strategies for an effective, competitive and diversified private sector led industrialisation process”.


To position Nigeria as one of the leading automotive manufacturing nations in the world.

Mission Statement:

To create an enabling environment for the manufacture of Nigerian made vehicles of international standards at competitive prices using local human and material resources.

The Council pursues this aspiration through the creation of an enabling environment achieved by an appropriate mix of protective measures, incentives, regulatory activities, and local content programmes.

The incremental results of this effort potentially generate large employment, transfer technology, boost transportation capacities, save foreign exchange and even bring about export. The Council’s policy activities essentially complement the industrial policy of Nigeria.
