The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) asked the federal government to establish dedicated websites that provide useful information on investments. This request was made following President Tinubu’s recent investment drive in India and the United Arab Emirates.
In the statement signed by the Council Chairman, Dr. Michael Olawale-Cole, the LCCI said the strategy would reduce unnecessary physical interactions and movements. These websites should include details on the areas in which investments are required and the funds needed for each project.
This strategy has the potential to provide global investment opportunities without necessitating excessive or unnecessary physical interactions/ movements. The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has taken note of the Federal Government of Nigeria’s participation at the just concluded G20 summit in New Delhi, India, and wishes to commend President Bola Tinubu’s outing at the world leaders’ event.
Nigeria’s invitation to the G20 Summit shows the nation’s strategic importance on the global stage and its capacity as the largest democracy and economy in Africa.
At the event, President Bola Tinubu expressed Nigeria’s commitment to play a significant role within the G-20 and contribute to shaping a more equitable world.
The President, during the meeting with the United Arab Emirates leader, Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, advanced his investment promotion objectives with high-level authorities in the public and private sectors of the United Arab Emirates. This culminated in the lifting of the Visa ban on Nigerians by the UAE, which is commendable as it will open up opportunities and enhance the ease of business between the two nations.
These proposed investments are certain to have positive impacts on job creation, economic development, and the diversification of the nation’s economy.
