As the capital of Niger, Niamey is the trade, administrative and economic center of the country. The major contributor to the economy is the mining and export of uranium, while internal markets are mainly agricultural or in the manufacture of bricks, ceramics, and food products. The city's learning institutions include the American International School and the Abdou Moumouni University. The National Museum of Niger is a great place to start learning about Niamey with a selection of cultural and historical information. There are also two national parks in which to explore the city's landscape and a herd of giraffe to visit. You will also soon discover the delights of the bustling Grande Marche marketplace, which sells a range of products, from foods to handicrafts.
