The Belt and Road Initiative, initiated by China’s President Xi Jinping in 2013, aims to enhance cooperation and infrastructure investment in nearly 70 countries across Asia, Africa, and Europe through land and maritime routes.

In 2018, Nigeria signed the Belt and Road cooperation agreement with China, and the initiative is expected to benefit partner-countries in various infrastructure investments.

The Vice President’s delegation to the Forum includes several government ministers and officials, emphasizing the importance of the event.
