Terrorism presents an increasing risk to business operations across Niger. The Mali-based Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO) militant group and regional terrorist organisation al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) continue to pose a threat in the north and west of the country. While foreign interests are likely to continue to constitute a primary target for jihadist groups in Niger, the capacity of these groups has been severely weakened by the French military presence in the Sahel.
