Prime Minister of Cape Verde, Jose Silva, has pledged better cooperation and an increase in trade volumes between Nigeria and his country in the coming years.
Silva said this in Abuja on Saturday at the official opening of the first-ever Cape Verdean Embassy in Nigeria.
The Prime Minister said that both countries stood to gain from each other with the cooperation that was being established.
He said, “The opening of this embassy means to strengthen the relationship between Cape Verde and Nigeria both politically and culturally.
“Also, we will strengthen our relationship with Cape Verde as well as its integration within the ECOWAS region.”
“We are going to lure more private investments to Cape Verde, we want to bring more tourists from Nigeria. We already have many travelers from Nigeria to Cape Verde.
“We already have some investments there from other African countries like the Floating Hub which is an investment by a Malian.
“We believe that politically and culturally we have a lot to offer, even as a tourist destination.
