Nigeria loses China’s second biggest trade partner position

Nigeria has dropped to the fourth position as China’s trade partner in Africa from its former second position, the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Zhou Pingjian, has said.

The envoy, however, noted that the relationship between the African country and Asian giants had a lot of potential, which could be tapped to the advantage of the two countries.

Speaking during the visit of the House of Representatives Committee on Nigeria-China Relations to the CGCOC headquarters on Friday in Abuja, the envoy stated that his country’s desire was for Nigeria to attract massive Foreign Direct Investment, which he said was needed for the country’s development.
