Nigeria remains Africa’s most viable, attractive investment destination


President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigeria remains the most viable and attractive investment destination in Africa.

He stated this while addressing a trade and investments forum at the Dubai Expo 2020, in the United Arab Emirates on Saturday, adding that Nigeria is on the path of becoming the continent’s leading industrial and trading nation.

The event was organised by the Nigerian-Arabian Gulf Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Nigeria’s Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment and the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission.

A statement released by the president’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said President Buhari noted that Nigeria was reaping from his administration’s efforts to consciously improve the country’s environment.

Buhari said; ‘‘Nigeria’s pavilion at the Expo 2020 clearly shows why we remain the most viable and attractive investment destination in Africa.

‘‘Our location, our natural resources, our population, and our regulations are there for all to see. Nigeria is on its way to becoming a leading industrial and trading nation in Africa.

‘‘To achieve this, our government focused on policies, projects and programmes that support private sector investors.

‘‘We introduced numerous fiscal incentives and infrastructure projects aimed at enhancing the viability of investments.

‘‘In spite of the adverse global economic environment of recent years, Nigeria’s investment environment has greatly improved at the national and sub-regional levels’’.
