FG will make Nigeria investor-friendly says Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan



President Goodluck Jonathan pledged today that his administration  would make Nigeria an  attractive destination for foreign investors.

Mr. Jonathan spoke when he received a delegation of Polish investors led by a former President of Poland, Aleksander Kwasniewski.

The  President noted that  with the ongoing liberalization and deregulation of various sectors of the economy, the country is full of new opportunities for discerning and knowledgeable investors.

“Previously, government alone monopolized some sectors of the economy,” he told his guests. “Now all those sectors are open to private investors. We believe that this is the best way forward for our country. Our policy is to welcome all credible investors and we will continue to do all that we can to create the right conditions for them to thrive.”

Responding to an invitation to visit Poland offered him by Mr. Kwasniewski on behalf of the Polish Government, Mr. Jonathan said he looked forward to meeting President Bronis?aw Komorowski soon to follow up on agreements reached on the expansion of bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and Poland when former President Olusegun Obasanjo led a Federal Government’s delegation to Warsaw in 2001.

The Polish delegation also included Jan Kulczyk, Chairman of Kulczyk Investments which recently established a foothold in Nigeria’s oil industry with its acquisition of a stake in OML 42.

Mr. Kulczyk told Mr. Jonathan that his company, which has interests in power, oil and gas, mineral resources and infrastructure, would welcome further opportunities to expand its investments in Nigeria.
