He further addressed the CEOs about the need for investment in several sectors of opportunities in the Nigerian market, urging them to believe in Nigeria as a fertile land for business, growth, and development.

As the evening concluded against the backdrop of Lagos’ breathtaking skyline, optimism lingered in the air, buoyed by the prospect of deeper cooperation between Indonesia and Nigeria. With the momentum generated by this exclusive dinner, expectations are high for the upcoming trade expo and investment forum to further propel the Indonesia-Nigeria partnership towards new heights of success.
