I’ll make Nigeria attractive for investment – President Buhari

I’ll make Nigeria attractive for investment – President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday reiterated his administration’s commitment to the creation of an enabling environment and making Nigeria an attractive place for business and investment.

Buhari made the pledge, in his statement, at the ninth summit of the D-8 Organisation for Economic Cooperation in Istanbul, Turkey.

He said it was his belief that only economies that promoted trade and attracted investment grew at more sustainable rates.

The President said, “Nigeria is committed to, and is actively pursuing a policy of trade and investment facilitation for growth.

“The gains from trade are reflected in greater competitiveness, improved productivity, job creation, consumer welfare, and prosperity.

“Economies that grow fastest and at more sustainable rates are those that actively promote trade and attract investment.

“We are committed to creating an enabling environment and making Nigeria an attractive place for business and investment.”

Buhari said having identified trade as the engine of economic growth and development, developing countries must continue to enhance the enabling environment for it to thrive.

He, therefore, urged governments of developing countries to encourage their respective economic agencies to be more active in participation at executive meetings organised by the oganisation’s secretariat.

“I am pleased to inform you of positive market developments currently in Africa that will support our efforts as members of the D-8 to enlarge our markets, facilitate our trade and investments, and develop our economies.
