Economy: IMF leader Christine Lagarde arrives Nigeria ahead of economic talks with President Buhari

Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde, arrived Nigeria yesterday Monday January 4th to begin a four-day visit to the country which is aimed at fostering a strong relationship with Nigeria and other African member countries as well as to discuss Nigeria's economic matters with President Buhari.

A statement from Lagarde reads in part
“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. 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. The visit to Nigeria will provide an opportunity to strengthen the Fund’s partnership with the largest economy in sub-Saharan Africa,”
She will also be visiting Cameroon after her stay in Nigeria.
