President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed that Nigeria remains the most viable and attractive investment destination in Africa.
Buhari stated this on Saturday while addressing a trade and investment forum at Expo 2020 Dubai.
The event was organised by the Nigerian Arabian Gulf Chamber of Commerce, Nigeria’s ministry of industry, trade and investment and the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC).
Buhari pointed out that Nigeria is on the path of becoming the continent’s leading industrial and trading nation.
He added that his administration has made efforts to improve the investment environment.
‘Nigeria’s pavilion at the Expo 2020 clearly shows why we remain the most viable and attractive investment destination in Africa,” Femi Adesina, presidential spokesperson, quoted Buhari as saying.
‘‘Our location, our natural resources, our population, and our regulations are there for all to see. Nigeria is on its way to become a leading industrial and trading nation in Africa.
“To achieve this, our government focused on policies, projects and programs that support private sector investors.
“We introduced numerous fiscal incentives and infrastructure projects aimed at enhancing the viability of investments.
“Despite the adverse global economic environment of recent years, Nigeria’s investment environment has greatly improved both at the national and sub-national levels.”
