Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the newly elected director-general of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) on Saturday arrived in Nigeria for a week working visit, according to The Nation.

The WTO DG was received by Nasir Sani-Gwarzo, the permanent secretary of the ministry of industry, trade, and investment.

Speaking with journalists she said; “The whole objective is to see how the WTO can better assist Nigeria and Nigerian entrepreneurs with respect to improving the economy.

“We hope to be able to use the African Continental Free Trade agreement to improve our trade and to do that we have to improve investments, we have to add value to some of our products.

“This continental free trade agreement is a unique opportunity for us to be able to engage commercially with other African countries and boost our exports.”

The former Nigerian minister of finance listed a number of meetings that would hold during the visit.

She hopes to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari and his chief of staff, the minister of trade and industry, the minister of foreign affairs, the minister of finance, the governor of the central bank, the organised private sector as well as the micro, small and medium enterprises, and women entrepreneurs.
