A deep bilateral trade relationship is on the way from Finland to the Nigerian Government with the aim of strengthening trade between both countries.
Finland’s Ambassador to Nigeria, Ms. Pirjo Suomela-Chowdhury, said the step would lead to strong trade and economic relationship between her country and Nigeria.
She made this statement during her courtesy visit to the President, Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Tony Ejinkonye.
She said the aim of the mission, is to seek for avenues for strong trade and economic relationship between the respective countries. According to her” The embassy is fully ready to collaborate with the Chamber, though there are notable Finnish companies in Nigeria doing direct and indirect businesses, even though there is room for improvement. Finnish companies are seeking to do businesses in different areas, such as health and the well-being industries,’ she said, adding, that she would like to use the opportunity to appeal to the Chamber and the Nigeria government to allow the Finnish companies thrive.
In a quick response, Ejinkeonye, said the Chamber’s focus during his tenure would be to seek for trade cooperation between Nigerian businessmen and their foreign counterparts.
He said that Finland is among the countries where the Chamber was yet to establish trade ties with. He implored the embassy and other companies in Finland to participate in the forth-coming Abuja International Trade fair.
