SAN FRANCISCO, December 14, (THEWILL) - President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan pledged Thursday in Abuja that under his leadership, the Federal Government will continue to implement measures, polices and programmes that will make Nigeria an even more attractive destination for foreign investors.

Speaking at an audience with a delegation of Polish investors led by a former President of Poland, Mr. Aleksander Kwasniewski, President Jonathan declared that with the ongoing liberalization and deregulation of various sectors of its economy, Nigeria was full of new opportunities for discerning and knowledgeable investors.

“Previously, government alone monopolized some sectors of the economy. Now all those sectors are open to private investors. We believe that this is the best way forward for our country. Our policy is to welcome all credible investors and we will continue to do all that we can to create the right conditions for them to thrive,” the President said.

Responding to an invitation to visit Poland conveyed to him by Mr. Kwasniewski on behalf of the current Polish Government, President Jonathan said that he looked forward to meeting President Bronisław Komorowski soon to follow up on agreements reached on the expansion of bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and Poland when former President Olusegun Obasanjo led a Federal Government delegation to Warsaw in 2001.

The Polish delegation also included Mr. Jan Kulczyk, the Chairman of Kulczyk Investments which recently established a foothold in Nigeria’s oil industry with its acquisition of a stake in OML 42.

Mr. Kulczyk told President Jonathan that his company which has interests in power, oil and gas, mineral resources and infrastructure will welcome further opportunities to expand its investments in Nigeria.
