The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) is working towards ensuring that Nigerian youths benefit from the blossoming bilateral relations between Nigerian and China.
To this end, a delegation on NYCN led by its President, Bello Shagari, has paid a courtesy visit to the Chinese Embassy in Abuja.
Shagari congratulated both Nigeria and China for the recent currency swap deal signed between the two countries and noted that the relationship between the two countries was at its peak.
He said that the youths of both countries should benefit from the mutual relations.
The NYCN president also urged the embassy to encourage Chinese companies to support youth activities as part of their social cooperate responsibilities.
In his response, the Chinese Counsel, Li Xuda, assured the NYCN President of the embassy’s cooperation.
Xuda also expressed his desire and the commitment of the Chinese Government to work with the Nigerian youths also to support the NYCN in its objectives.
He harped on the importance of NYCN members meeting with their Chinese counterparts, assuring that the embassy would arrange for such meeting soon.
The bilateral relations between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the People’s Republic of China keep expanding on growing bilateral trade and strategic cooperation.
China is considered one of Nigeria’s closest allies and partners. China is also one of Nigeria’s important trading and export partners.
