The federal government says there is a strong interest in fostering trade between Nigeria and China.

Yusuf Tuggar, minister of foreign affairs, spoke during a China-Nigeria Business event in Beijing on Friday, according to a statement by Alkasim Abdulkadir, minister’s media aide.

Abdulkadir said the business event was part of the activities marking Tuggar’s official visit to China at the invitation of his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi.

He said the event, aimed to enhance bilateral trade, investment, and economic ties between the two nations, was jointly organised by the Nigerian Embassy and Yingke Law firm.


The spokesperson said the minister emphasised the importance of the long-standing relationship between Nigeria and China, highlighting mutual respect and shared developmental goals.

“This event is a testament to our commitment to strengthening Nigeria-China relations,” Abdulkadir said.

“Over 200 Chinese companies took part in the event, showing a strong interest in fostering economic collaboration between the two nations.”


Abdulkadir said the minister’s visit includes high-level meetings and events, such as the inaugural plenary session of the Nigeria-China intergovernmental committee in Beijing and the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting of the new champions in Dalian.

“These engagements are expected to further solidify the strategic partnership between Nigeria and China,” he added.

Abdulkadir also said Tuggar will meet with ECOWAS Ambassadors and launch the 4D cultural diplomacy programme of President Bola Tinubu’s renewed hope agenda at the Nigerian embassy.
