President Muhammadu Buhari has assured investors of his commitment to significantly improving the operating environment for domestic and international companies in Nigeria as part of its efforts to boost employment in the country.

He gave the assurance on Thursday when he received the new Japanese Ambassador to Nigeria, Sadanobu Kusaoke, who was at the Presidential Villa to present his Letter of Credence.

The President said the Federal Government, under his leadership, would welcome greater investment inflows from Japan and other developed nations in support of its plans to revitalize the Nigerian economy and create more jobs.

He told Kusaoke that his administration would particularly welcome more trade and economic cooperation with Japan in the manufacturing, technology and agricultural sectors.

According to him; “I was very impressed with the role your Prime Minister played at our talks with G-7 leaders in Germany. He had a deep understanding of the challenge in the North-East of Nigeria and how it is affecting our economy.”

“We look forward to a stronger partnership with your country in many  areas, especially in technology, which is now the major driver of job creation across the world today.”

Buhari also received Letters of Credence from the new Ambassador of Ukraine, Valerii Aleksandruk and the new High Commissioner of Pakistan, Agha Muhammed Umer Farooq.

All the new envoys assured the President of their readiness to work very hard to maintain and strengthen existing relations between Nigeria and their respective countries during their tenure in Abuja.
