Nigeria to cement relations with China

07 January 2014, 08:12Augustine Osayande

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan pledged to enhance the cordial bilateral relations between the country and China.

He said the relations, which he described as mutually-beneficial, had increased tremendously in the last three years.

The President said the growing bilateral relations between Nigeria and China had resulted in phenomenal increase in trade between both countries.

“Mutually-beneficial bilateral relations between Nigeria and China have increased tremendously in the last three years and will be further enhanced in coming years,” Jonathan said at an audience with China’s outgoing ambassador to Nigeria, Denq Boqing.

He commended China’s transportation infrastructure as well as the country’s water and power sectors.

The President called for greater investment from China in Nigeria’s agricultural sector and other sectors where Chinese expertise can help to develop Nigeria’s potentials.

He praised the outgoing Ambassador for working hard to boost trade and economic relations between both countries during his tenure in Nigeria.

Boqing, who served in Nigeria for three years, said that his most fulfilling assignment was facilitating President Jonathan’s State Visit to China last year.

He assured the President that he would continue to work for the expansion of relations between the two countries.
