Abuja - The government is set to sign a Joint Commission Cooperation (JCC) with Kenya to boost trade and investment between the two countries.
Akin Oyateru, Nigerian High Commissioner to Kenya, confirmed this in Abuja on Monday.
Oyateru said that both countries would explore their various trade and investment opportunities.
"When our two presidents meet tomorrow we will be able to sign the joint commission cooperation agreement which will regulate our relations with Kenya.
"Nigeria is one of the main importers of tea from Kenya; worth about N2 billion every year.
"When we have an agreement in place, we will be able to regulate the various sections of our trade, and that will encourage more trade and investment between the two countries,” he said.

He also said the JCC will launch a business forum where opportunities for investment between both countries would be maximised.
