In addition to discussing investment prospects and opportunities within Abuja, the Permanent Secretary encouraged China to explore the Administration’s Livestock Project in Paikon-Kore, Gwagwalada Area Council, which presents avenues for investment in livestock farming and specialized tree cultivation.

In response, the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Cui Jian Chun, assured his support for the FCT Administration’s initiatives spanning security, infrastructural development, agriculture, food security, and Information Communication Technology (ICT). He regarded Abuja as a relatively secure destination for investment and commerce and revealed China’s substantial investments in electricity to contribute to the economic industrialization of the Territory.
