Customs Boss harps on trade facilitation :  meets polish investors

The Comptroller-General of Customs, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi MFR, has expressed his administration’s readiness to collaborate with foreign and domestic traders, stating that his main priority is to take proactive measures to facilitate trade.

The CGC spoke when he received the delegation of ZGM Investment Group of Companies Limited – a co-ordinating firm of the Ogun Guangdong Free Trade Zone and Polish Investors at Customs Headquarters in Abuja.

Recall that the CGC has, on several occasions, reiterated President Bola Tinubu’s economic policies, which mandate the Nigeria Customs Service to create an enabling environment for legal businesses to flourish in the country.

He told them; “the Service is aware that you are investors, and you would want your investment to be protected, as well as to yield some dividends. Thus, if we can achieve the objectives of your coming to Nigeria, then I consider this as a good start. It is going to be a win-win collaboration for the parties involved.”

He also assured the delegation of Customs’ unflinching cooperation in opening doors for investors who may wish to invest their business in Nigeria.

He added; “although I have engaged in a working tour to Zone ‘A’ recently, I want to assure you that my management will study the possibility of organizing a special visit to Ogun Guangdong Free Trade Zone.”

In his remarks, the Coordinator of Ogun Guangdong Free Trade Zone, Abeh Onas, thanked the CGC for honouring their request for a courtesy visit to discuss matters related to their FTZ.

Abeh also said they were at the Headquarters of the Service to appreciate the CGC for his unwavering commitment to improve trade in Nigeria and to further strengthen their lines of communication, as well as collaboration between the Service and Ogun Guangdong FTZ.

He explained; “as we both share common interests in facilitating international trade, I believe that reinforcing our existing partnership can yield positive outcomes for both entities and contribute to the economic growth of the country.”
