TOP US OFFICIALS VISIT NIGERIA

Date:

US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Joy Basu, recently concluded her inaugural visit to Nigeria from October 18-20. The visit focused on facilitating US investment into Nigeria and advocating for additional reforms to create a transparent and conducive investment climate.

During her visit, Basu met with Minister of Health Muhammad Ali Pate and engaged with government and private sector leaders in Abuja. In Lagos, she convened various stakeholders, including women from small and medium-sized enterprises, intellectual property lawyers, and creative industry experts, to discuss avenues for growth and innovation.

Basu concluded her trip by connecting US tech startups with state government officials, aiming to foster a more connected and inclusive innovation ecosystem in Nigeria. This visit builds upon sustained high-level engagements, including the meeting between President Biden and President Tinubu at the G20 Summit, where both leaders expressed commitment to strengthening the US-Nigeria relationship and expanding mutual prosperity.

The Biden-Harris Administration’s dedication to this endeavor was further demonstrated by various officials’ visits, such as Assistant Secretary for Energy Resources Geoffrey Pyatt, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade Marisa Lago, and Deputy Secretary of Treasury Wally Adeyemo.

Additionally, initiatives like the Partnership for Atlantic Cooperation and visits by executives from leading US pension funds underline the US government’s intent to foster inclusive economic growth and shared prosperity in collaboration with Nigeria.
