President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday promised that his administration will take all necessary actions to significantly improve the operating environment for domestic and international companies in Nigeria in order to boost employment generation in the country.
He made the promise during an audience with the new Japanese Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Sadanobu Kusaoke, who presented his letter of credence at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Buhari, through a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, saidthat the Federal Government, under his leadership, will welcome greater investment inflows from Japan and other developed nations in support of its plans to revitalize the Nigerian economy and create more jobs.
The President said administration will particularly welcome more trade and economic cooperation with Japan in the manufacturing, technology and agricultural sectors.
He said: “I was very impressed with the role your Prime Minister played during our talks with G-7 leaders in Germany. He had a deep understanding of the challenge in the Northeast of Nigeria and how it is affecting our economy.
“We look forward to a stronger partnership with your country in many areas, especially in technology, which is now the major driver of job creation across the world today.”
Buhari also received on Thursday letters of credence from the new Ambassador of Ukraine, Dr. Valerii Aleksandruk and the new High Commissioner of Pakistan, Lt.- Gen. Agha Muhammed Umer Farooq.
All the new envoys assured President Buhari that they will work very hard to maintain and strengthen existing relations between Nigeria and their respective countries during their tenure.
