On behalf of AACCI Secretariat Hub, Republic of India; it is my pleasure to welcome you all to this August Occasion as we honour your official invitation to introduce Asian African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (www.asianafrican.org) to Consular of The People’s Republic of China, Lagos Nigeria.

Development of bilateral relations between Nigeria and The People’s Republic of China established formal diplomatic relations on February 10th, 1971. China has supported Nigeria bid for a seat in the United Nation Security Council.

It is envisaged that long term trade bilateral between China and Nigeria will enhance Nigeria economic growth and infrastructural development. It should then be the policy.

Harnessing the economic potentials of SMEs in Nigeria is intandem with AACCI Economic Agenda. From this stand point the Directorate of SMEs under the leadership of Advisory Board Member/Coordinator of SMEs – MR ANRINLE ADEKUNLE AHMED of our chambers wishes to collaborate with China Small and Medium Enterprises (CASMEs) of the People’s Republic of China, Co-operate on Trade Fair and Exhibitions, Coordinate business activities between AACCI SMEs department and CASMEs for rapid economic growth of the two countries.
