  • Abstract:

    The business environment of any industry consists of systems and structures, which determine the atmosphere under which all the business of that industry is transacted. They affect directly or indirectly all practitioners of that industry, without their being able to influence it. In a scientific investigation into the problems of the construction industry in Nigeria, out of the 47 variables identified that can adversely affect the construction industry, 37 variables were classified under the environment of the construction industry. Of the 18 variables considered to constitute the most serious problems, which occur all the time, 17 variables were related to the business environment of the construction industry. The research findings are reviewed with respect to the business environment in Nigeria.
