In a speech on behalf of the National President of NACCIMA, the ACCI President, Chief Emeka Obegolu SAN, reaffirmed NACCIMA’s commitment to fostering sustainable economic ties and addressing the challenges faced by Nigerian exporters in the Chinese market.

The meeting underscored the need to expand the range of Nigerian agro commodities included on China’s protocol list, and the concerns regarding the issuance and acceptance of letters of credit between Nigerian and Chinese banks.

The Director General of Hunan’s Department of Commerce, Mr. Shen, acknowledged the strength of the bilateral relationship and expressed willingness to enhance cooperation as part of the broader China-Africa Initiative.

He also announced the upcoming China-Africa Economic Trade Expo to be hosted in Nigeria in November 2024, promising further collaboration details to NACCIMA.

The statement further said: “The Association is poised to work closely with the Hunan delegation and relevant stakeholders to pave the way for a more inclusive trade agreement that benefits both Nigerian exporters and Chinese importers and to support the establishment of a Nigerian business presence in Hunan.

NACCIMA remains dedicated to enhancing its role as a pivotal force in the advancement of commerce and industry, not only within the Nigerian economy but also in its international engagements, particularly with China.”
