Investment in African securities involves heightened risks, including expropriation and/or nationalization of assets, confiscatory taxation, political instability, including authoritarian and/or military involvement in governmental decision-making, armed conflict, the impact on the economy as a result of civil war, and social instability as a result of religious, ethnic and/or socioeconomic unrest and, in certain countries, genocidal warfare. The economic development of Nigeria has been significantly hindered by military rule, mismanagement, corruption and ethnic conflict.Decreasing Asian imports, new trade regulations, changes in exchange rates, a recession in Asia or a slowing of economic growth in this region could have an adverse impact on the economies of Central Asia. The countries in Central Asia present different economic and political conditions from those in Western markets, and less social, political and economic stability. In addition, the ability of companies to efficiently conduct their business activities in Central Asia is subject to changes in government policy or shifts in political attitudes within countries in the region. Any significant economic or political turmoil in China itself, may also have a significant negative impact on the financial markets in Central Asia.
