Ms. Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), will visit Nigeria on Tuesday to engage with policy makers to seek ways out of the current economic troubles of the largest economy in Africa.
The visit to Nigeria will also provide an opportunity to strengthen the Fund’s partnership with the largest economy in sub-Saharan Africa.
In Abuja, Ms. Lagarde will meet with President Muhammadu Buhari and other senior leaders, along with business leaders, prominent women, and representatives of civil society. She will also meet with legislators.
“I look forward to productive meetings with President Buhari and his colleagues as they address important economic challenges, most importantly the impact of low oil prices,”
Ms. Lagarde said ahead of her trip.
The IMF Boss said: “Nigeria is working hard to improve its business environment, promote opportunities for growth in the private sector, and strengthen social cohesion, all areas where the government has an important role to play.”
