Relations between Nigeria and the UAE have come a long way with impressive outcomes, after years of positive engagements in diverse areas of mutual interests and shared accomplishments between the two countries. Structure required for constructive and beneﬁcial engagements have been laid through the signing of some important bilateral agreements between Nigeria and the UAE. The recently signed MOU between our two countries, on the establishment of Joint Commission for Cooperation, will stimulate more engagements, with its multi-sectoral nature.
With our great potentials in agriculture/agribusiness, commerce, trade, mining, oil and gas e.t.c, Nigeria presents a fertile ground for investments in vast ﬁelds, including Infrastructural Development (Roads, Railways, Power), Mass Housing, Manufacturing, Digital/Artiﬁcial Intelligence and a host of others. Nigeria will actively participate at the upcoming EXPO 2020, with a view to achieving more in the areas of trade and investments as well as consolidating the existing cordial relations between our two countries.
I wish to call on the business communities of our two countries to take full advantage of the investment opportunities being provided by this platform.
