As an effect of globalization and internationalisation, the competition in the world market has intensified significantly. With such competition, the business organisations are aiming to strengthen their internal capability.

As training is strongly linked to evaluation, a discussion and comparison of workplace training of civil servants in both countries will be included where appropriate and/or where information exclusively on evaluation is not available.
US policies include economic issues and oil. The US National Intelligence Council has reported that Nigeria along with Angola and other oil-rich African countries could supply a quarter of U.S. total oil imports by 2015. (Peel 2010, p. xvii)
