In a statement by its Senior Information Officer Comfort Philip -Egwu, Katagum said, “Expo 2025 Osaka, Japan is a global event for millions of people, from different countries to share ideas, showcase innovation, encourage collaboration and celebrate human ingenuity.
It, therefore, offers a unique opportunity for all the States and the FCT, Public and Private sectors to assemble under a business umbrella, where they can express themselves using their own unique cultural setting, investment ideas and programmes. The Exposition is expected to contribute to an increase in trade and cultural exchanges, as well as attract Foreign Direct Investment”.
She said Nigeria’s participation at the 2025 World Expo in Japan would primarily guarantee access to over 180 participating economies and International Organizations, brought under one umbrella for economic interactions and networking which would also serve as a valuable platform for the promotion of “Made-in-Nigeria” goods and services.
“The Expo will also be used to further expose Nigerian innovators to the world, especially in the area of Fintech, ICT and Renewable Energy, where young Nigerians are making a headway around the globe, through innovative and technological exchanges with global industry leaders”, the minister stated.
