Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday welcomed the co-founder and former Executive Chairman of popular Chinese e-commerce firm Alibaba group, Jack Ma.
Alibaba is one of the world’s largest retailer and e-commerce company, and one of the biggest investment corporations in the world.
At the meeting, Osinbajo promised the business mogul the support of the government to businesses willing to invest in Nigeria.
Jack Ma is leading a large delegation of Chinese investors to Nigeria, Channels reports. He explained that he is in the country to honour Osinbajo’s invitation extended to him earlier in Davos, Switzerland.
He also expressed desire to assist Africa with particular interest in Nigeria. He disclosed that he is pursuing a programme which he terms “Four Es” – E-infrastructure, Entrepreneurship, E-government and Education.
It was a pleasure receiving Jack Ma today at the office.
Thank you for acknowledging Nigeria's role in Africa and the world.
By leading a team of investors to Nigeria, I hope you see as we do, investment opportunities in Africa's digital economy, infrastructure and her people. pic.twitter.com/nlvRJZVuFy
