Dutch firm eager to set up textile park in Nigeria
Dutch firm Vlisco is eager to set up a textile park on 400 hectares in Nigeria, according to company chief executive officer (CEO) David Suddens, who said this on the sidelines of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent official visit to The Hague. Several other Dutch firms have also expressed interest in investing in Nigeria in various sectors.

The firms include FrieslandCampina, Heineken, Connexion and Royal Dutch Shell.

This was conveyed in a statement by special adviser to the Nigerian president on media and publicity Femi Adesina, according to a report in a Nigerian newspaper.

Over 20 CEOs of Dutch-owned companies met Preisident Buhari during his visit.

Buhari urged the businesses to build factories in Nigeria and source raw materials locally rather than importing in bulk. (DS)
