Nigeria to engage private sector in economic decision
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says the Federal Government is committed to ensuring adequate consultation, especially with the private sector, in taking vital decisions on the economy.
The Vice President stated this on Thursday in Abuja at the launch of the Nigerian Economic Diplomacy Initiative (NEDI), an initiative of the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
He said the country was committed to all Pan African and other deal that had made Nigeria to stand out as a country, with a view to integrate Africa.
”We are also committed to ensuring adequate consultation is made, especially with the private sector, before we make further commitment to some of the international treaties that are important to us.
He said Nigeria was also committed to strengthening economic ties at the official level on issues like technical cooperation, air services, double taxation, investment promotion and protection and citizens rights among others.
He noted that the trade and investment ties between countries were driven mainly by their private sector actors.
