Nigeria is the best place on earth to invest and succeed, says President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime as it decries the low level of trade with Egypt.
Specifically, the regime’s ambassador to Egypt, Nura Rimi, noted that the trade volume between the countries was low, boasting no better nation to do business with and succeed than Nigeria.
“Any investor looking for a place to invest, build, thrive, innovate and succeed has no better place on earth to go than Nigeria,’’ he stressed. “It is heart-warming to note that under a public-private partnership arrangement, Nigeria recently opened the First Export Trade House in Egypt.”
Rimi said it would serve as a central location for made-in-Nigeria products to be shipped, displayed and distributed to the rest of the world.
He stated this at the maiden edition of the Nigeria-Egypt Trade Conference and Exhibition (NETCE) in Cairo.
Rimi described the level of economic activities between the two countries as generally unimpressive.
The Nigerian envoy said that the countries should have better trade engagements with the abundance of natural resources and a youthful, enterprising, and innovative population.
The envoy called on participants at the conference to explore more trading opportunities and businesses to enhance economic ties, increase the flow of investments and generate more wealth for the peoples of both countries.
The ambassador also mentioned that Nigeria and Egypt enjoy warm and cordial relations with strong cooperation in education, defence and security matters.
“The two countries also collaborate in regional and global affairs in the quest to promote international peace and security,’’ he said.
