Nigeria and Indonesia flags were hoisted high as officials from Nigeria and Indonesia, along with the business elite, press, and members of the Nigerian diaspora gathered to officially open the Nigerian Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry new office in Abuja.
The opening of the office was hailed by both Nigerians and visiting Indonesian dignitaries led by the Indonesian Ambassador to Nigeria, His Excellency Harry Purwanto as a big boost to an already strong international friendship. The new building was opened by the Nigerian Indonesian Chamber to increase efficiency and improve proximity to members in other regions of the federation.
The diplomatic relations between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Republic of Indonesia date back to 1965, when Indonesia opened its resident diplomatic mission in Lagos. In 1976 Nigeria reciprocated by opening its mission in Jakarta. Nigeria was the first Sub-Saharan African country that established a diplomatic mission in Indonesia.
The newly commissioned office of the Nigerian Indonesian Chamber is located at the 13 Lord Lugard street Asokoro, Abuja and is now open to all existing and prospective members.
