We hear that the United States Embassy in Abuja has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent visit to the U.S. has triggered a flood of inquiries from potential American investors on the country’s automotive industry.

The embassy’s Counselor for Economic Affairs, Mr. Alan Tousignant, reportedly said this when he visited the Director-General of the National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC) on Friday in Abuja.

According to a statement released by the NADDC, “ Tousignant said that there had been an upsurge in the amount of business enquiries from America since the recent visit of President Buhari to the U.S… He told the NADDC DG that quite a number of the latest inquiries from potential American investors were on the Nigeria auto industry.Therefore, he needed to know about applicable staff structure, incentives, availability of skilled personnel, current total installed capacity, local value addition and industrial clusters and infrastructure”
