The President wants to use this platform to draw in foreign investment and encourage more of it in Nigeria’s core labor-intensive industries so that more jobs and money can be generated.

Additionally, he will make the most of this chance to emphasise Nigeria’s allure as a location for foreign investment, notably by presenting his cross-sectoral reform strategy as embodied by the Renewed Hope Agenda, according to the statement.

Additionally, the President will meet privately with a variety of foreign leaders from four separate continents, including G20 and non-G20 nations. According to the statement, these interactions are intended to improve the mutually beneficial bilateral economic, trade, and investment partnerships.

The Nigerian president is anticipated to talk at the G20 Summit about Nigeria’s perspective on the subject “One Earth-One Family-One Future,” which emphasises the need for international cooperation to overcome the problems facing humanity and the environment.

The G-20 is a substantial economic power bloc of socio-economic opportunity and geo-political stability, contributing up to 80% of the world’s GDP collectively, 75% of international trade, and housing 60% of the world’s people.

Although it is ideal for Nigeria to be a member of the G20, the government has started a wide-ranging consultation process to determine the advantages and hazards of membership.

Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Türkiye, United Kingdom, and the United States make up 19 of the Group of Twenty (G20), along with the European Union.
