The initiative will focus on both national and international participation in a digital economy, the Ministry revealed.

“As Africa’s largest economy with a rapidly growing services sector, we know that a focus on a digital Nigeria is a choice for the future, and that the regulatory and trade rules we adopt to do that have an important role to play,” stated Ambassador Chiedu Osakwe, Chief Trade Negotiator of Nigeria.
