Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, has advised investors from the United Kingdom to take advantage of the improved business environment in Nigeria to invest in key sectors of the economy. She gave the advice at a meeting with members of the business delegation of the visiting British Prime Minister, Theresa May. The Minister stated that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari had taken a bold step in creating an enabling business environment for attracting investments, through the establishment of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC). She expressed the commitment of the Government to further improve on the business
environment and sustain existing reforms to consolidate the gains of the economy through the deepening of the subnational Ease of Doing Business project. “There are lots of business opportunities in Nigeria and the Government is addressing assiduously the impediments to ease of doing business in Nigeria. “This will make it easier for businesses to grow and contribute to sustainable economic activity in the country as well as create jobs,” Adeosun said. This, according to her, will ensure the capital market plays a pivotal role in stimulating the economy. She added, “We can’t have enough capital to finance infrastructure development. Deepening the capital market is key to the funding of infrastructure in Nigeria
