With this year’s theme: Increasing business opportunities between Nigeria and America, the trade mission committee, who will be leaving by April 20, has reiterated it mission to promote the development of trade, commerce, investment and industrial technological relationship between public and private sections of the two countries.

Speaking to journalists on Wednesday, the National President of the NACC, Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa, said this year’s theme is therefore not only apt but appropriate because Nigeria has become the preferred investment destination of the continent, in spite of the numerous challenges.

The Trade Mission consisting of about 30 delegates intends to visit four key cities - Washington, D.C, Pittsburg, Atlanta and Detroit, where they hope to explore business opportunities between Nigeria and the United States in the area of Agriculture and Agro-Business, Information and Communication Technology, Energy and Power, Transportation, Health Care, Hospitality and Tourism.
