Bilateral Relations: Australia And Africa Need To Deepen Trade Engagements – Amb Madubuike, Nigeria Envoy To Australia

The High Commissioner of Nigeria to Australia and the Pacific Region ,Amb. Anderson N.Madubike,has again noted the need for African countries to deepen trade engagements with Australia. This,he added, would make for a win-win situation in relations between the countries of the two regions.

Amb. Madubike,who stated the above in Canberra, Australia,on Monday during a dinner he organised for the Director General of the World Trade Organization, Nigerian-born Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and members of her delegation,who were on an official visit to Australia,added that Africa and Australia must strive to realize the potential each of the regions possessed in trade,raw materials and in other areas like education and cultural exchange.

The Nigerian Envoy also noted that Africa still lags behind in both trade relations and in other areas of foreign policy engagements,hence the need to close the yawning gap to realize better results.
