The United Kingdom Government has confirmed the appointment of Helen Grant MP, a British-Nigerian, as a new trade envoy to Nigeria.
A statement on Thursday explained that UK Trade Envoys were appointed by the British Prime Minister and were expected to promote trade for UK businesses in selected high-growth and developing markets around the world.
They also support the activities of the UK’s Department of International Trade, it said.
The statement said Grant’s role would provide support to the UK Government’s trade and investment priorities in Nigeria through high-level engagement with Nigerian ministers, by leading trade delegations, engaging key businesses in the market, and promoting bilateral trade.
