Nigeria-Belgium trade volume hits N64bn
Nigerian Ambassador to Belgium Felix Awanbor said the trade volume of Nigeria with his host country is now €300 million (N64billion).
He said this, Saturday, while addressing journalists on the sidelines of the just concluded Fourth European Union-Africa Summit in Brussels.
The envoy disclosed that 28 Belgian companies were already active in Nigeria, many of which, he added were into construction.
He said: “On the average, going by the last figure we gathered from the department of their own statistics here, our trade volume is close to about €300 million. That’s insignificant; it’s a kind of a reversed situation that we’re trying to encourage. The trading is important, no doubt about that, but we’re more interested in them going to invest their capital in Nigeria.”
