The Nigeria Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA) has solicited for Australian government’s support to deepen engagement with the Australian private sector in the area of mining and agriculture to boost Nigeria’s economy post-COVID-19.
Its National President, Hajiya Saratu Iya Aliyu, made this known when she led a NACCIMA delegation on a courtesy visit to the Australian High Commissioner, Ms. Claire Ireland, at the Australian High Commission office in Abuja, recently.
Particularly, the visit was against the background and follow up on the existing strong ties between NACCIMA and the Australian High Commission, which dates back to several years.
Hajiya Aliyu pointed out that increasing collaboration between the Australian private sector and the Nigerian private sector, as well as between the chambers movement on the two sides, are important areas of her administration’s agenda.
She acknowledged that the Australian High Commission’s involvement in ensuring the success of NACCIMA mining road show to Melbourne and Perth in August 2018 was critical to the country’s mining industry development in the area of foreign mining investment.
