Lagos state Governor, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, has expressed the state's readiness to collaborate with the Polish Government to enhance economic activities and development. The partnership aims to strengthen trade relationships and explore new opportunities between Poland and Lagos state.

During a courtesy visit by the Ambassador of the Republic of Poland, Her Excellency, Joanna Tarnawaska, Governor Sanwo-Olu's Deputy, Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat, emphasized the state's willingness to partner with the Polish government through its Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Cooperative. The collaboration aims to work with various companies in Poland for the overall development of both Lagos state and Nigeria.

Hamzat assured the Ambassador and her team that the partnership between the two governments will be fruitful, with a government ready to listen and work towards moving the country forward economically and financially.

"We are happy to work with you. Your Head of Trade Office is here in Lagos. We will see what we can do. Maybe interacting through our Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Cooperatives, to see how we can partner with various companies in Poland. I was reading that you are producing things that are of similar qualities to Germany but the prices are lower, which makes sense for us to work with you. In this case, we will make sure that we elevate our economic activities and, of course, Nigeria,"

Sanwo-Olu's Deputy also highlighted the significance of Lagos as the economic and financial capital of Nigeria. Being the center of all actions in the country, a partnership between the state government and the Polish government could uplift the entire country's economy.

"Lagos is the capital of Nigeria economically and financially, where business is and 48 percent of bank transactions in the country occur in Lagos with bank headquarters therein," Governor Sanwo-Olu said.

The Polish Ambassador, Joanna Tarnawaska, acknowledged the positive diplomatic relationship between Poland and the Lagos state government. She expressed hopes to enhance the relationship through trade opportunities.

Tarnawaska mentioned that the President of Poland signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Polish Government last year. Her visit to Lagos aims to explore new opportunities and cooperation between Poland and Lagos State.

"With the Head of the Foreign Trade, Ms. Justyna Sitarska, and together we will look for new opportunities for cooperation between Poland and the Lagos State government," she stated.

The collaboration between Lagos state and the Polish government holds the potential to strengthen economic ties and open doors to new business ventures. It is a step towards fostering international partnerships for the mutual benefit of both regions.

This collaboration aligns with the Nigerian government's commitment to diversify the economy and create more job opportunities. By exploring partnerships with countries like Poland, Lagos state and Nigeria can further boost their economic activities and overall development.
