FG to partner U.S. on infrastructure development

By on March 13, 2013

The Minister of Works, Mr Mike Onolememen, on Tuesday in Abuja said the Federal Government would go into partnership with the U.S. on infrastructure development.

Onolememen said at an interactive session with the American Corporate Council on Africa’s Infrastructure Trade Mission to Nigeria that the partnership would help to grow the Nigerian economy. He also said that the partnership would help to narrow the infrastructure gap in Nigeria.

“Infrastructure development remains the major key to national
development,’’ the minister said. He commended the trade mission for keying into Nigeria’s vast investment as Nigeria remained destination choice for investors.

In his speech at the session, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Olugbenga Ashiru, said Nigeria had continued to attract investment from various countries.

“Nigeria is one of the topmost emerging markets for now and for the future. The challenges the country is facing in terms of security are isolated and they will not affect the overall inflow of investments into the key sectors of the economy,’’ he said.
