Message from President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria
HE Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR
President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria
I am delighted to invite you to attend the Nigerian International Investors Forum (NIIF) 2012 in Abuja on 3-5 October 2012.
My administration is very committed to the establishment of a strong foundation on which to build development for Nigerians with equal opportunities for all. We have therefore prioritised power generation and distribution, tackling corruption and security for Nigeria and the Niger Delta, along with Water, Health, Transport and an improved business environment for job creation and human empowerment.
Building on the past decade of sustained economic and democratic development, I believe the nation has an abundance of significant opportunities to be explored for development and
investment including bridging the infrastructure gap, revitalising agriculture and manufacturing, and rebalancing the dependence on oil. The challenge of generating inclusive development and improving national capacity and skills are also critical to achieving high growth rates.
The NIIF provides a good platform to focus on how the private and public sector can forge
sustainable partnerships in respect of reaching the national objective which is to become one of the top global economic leaders by the year 2020. With this abundance of investment
opportunities, we will be glad to welcome a selected audience of business leaders and investors to assist the achievement of these goals.
This Nigerian International Investors Forum will be organised by NIPC in partnership with the
Commonwealth Business Council and Image Affairs Nigeria.
I hope that you will be able to attend this important event and look forward to welcoming you to Abuja.
