Buhari said Nigeria is ready to expand industrial development, especially in the manufacturing and textile industries, and to speed up infrastructure construction, which presents huge opportunities for both countries.

Nigerian Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Audu Ogbeh told a forum in Beijing on bilateral production capacity and investment cooperation: "Nigeria has a large amount of arable land. We expect China to bring agricultural machinery."

Nigerian Minister of Defense Mansur Dan Ali said his country will wage a long-term fight against terrorists to ensure the security of all foreign-invested companies in Nigeria.
