Jonathan commends Nigeria-China relations, applauds outgoing Ambassador

President Goodluck Jonathan

One third of Africa-China trade from Nigeria

President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday applauded the growing bilateral relations between Nigeria and China, which he said, had resulted in a phenomenal increase in trade between both countries.

Mr. Jonathan said this during a meeting with the outgoing Chinese ambassador to Nigeria, Denq Boqing.

The president said the bilateral relations between both countries had increased tremendously in the last three years. He expressed hope that the mutually-beneficial bilateral relations would be further enhanced in coming years.

Mr. Jonathan noted that one-third of the volume of trade between Africa and China was currently from Nigeria.

He commended China’s support for the rehabilitation of Nigeria’s transportation infrastructure.

The president also thanked the Chinese government for the development of the nation’s water and power sectors.

He called for greater investment from China in Nigeria’s agricultural sector and other sectors where Chinese expertise could help to develop Nigeria’s potential.

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

Mr. Boqing, who served in Nigeria for three years, said that his most fulfilling assignment was facilitating Mr. Jonathan’s state visit to China in 2013.

He assured the president that he would continue to work for the expansion of the cordial relations between China and Nigeria wherever he finds himself.
