Niger’s Arab minority is now responsible for more than 60% of Niger’s industries and 90% of its transport.

Most bus lines linking Niger to West Africa are owned by them.

They have shares in local airline companies and own several factories.

It's a change from days gone by - with a policy of ethnic inclusion bringing the community from the margins into the mainstream.
