Mr Pablo Segrelles, Chief Economic and Commercial Counsellor of the Embassy of Spain in Nigeria says Spanish companies are ready to have Nigerian partners for their investments and products.
Segrelles told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that their growing interest in Nigeria was due to President Muhammadu Buhari’s ongoing effort at fighting corruption.
“More and more Spanish companies and investors are now seeing the need to come and invest and do business with their would-be Nigerian partners.
“These companies have found out that there are good business and investment opportunities in Nigeria.
“We value President Buhari’s current push against corruption so much, and this is beginning to make more Spanish companies come to Nigeria to look for partners’’, he said.
The envoy said that a business delegation of 11 Spanish companies from Valenciana and Andalucia, recently visited Lagos and had fruitful partnership discussion with their would-be Nigerian partners.
Segrelles said the companies had the opportuny of introducing their products and services including agriculture development solutions and pharmaceutical products to some Nigerians dealing in them.
Segrelles said that the business delegation also introduced Spanish food and wine, olive oil and interior decoration to their Nigerian partners.
“This goes to show that so many Spanish companies are now willing and ready to find market for their products in Nigeria.
“My office would continue to facilitate the right condition for more Spanish companies to come into the huge Nigerian market for their products’’, he said.
The economic counselor, however, urged the Federal Government to urgently consider waivers for its foreign exchange restrictions to allow more foreign investment and business into the country. (NAN)
