The Netherlands, the 2nd largest agricultural exporter in the world (after USA) is one of these 12 countries, and our visit to your council today is to formerly brief you about this annual summit in Nigeria, as well as our pre-summit activity tagged “Nigeria Netherlands Agribusiness Week”, to be held in Amsterdam in September 2022.”
Mr. Apeji explained that the “Nigeria Netherlands Agribusiness Week” seeks to engage existing and potential Dutch companies and investors in the Nigerian agricultural sector. The Netherlands is one of the most active countries helping Nigeria to grow and modernize its agro industry, and the purpose of this agribusiness week in Amsterdam is to further deepen this healthy bilateral relationship.”
