Nigeria: Jonathan Hosts Brazilian President

President Goodluck Jonathan will on Saturday receive President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil in Abuja and hold talks with her on the further expansion of trade and economic relations between Nigeria and Brazil.

President Rousseff's official visit to the country is in furtherance of efforts to boost economic and developmental cooperation between Nigeria and Brazil which were initiated during President Jonathan's visit to Rio de Janeiro last year.

At the talks with the Brazilian President June last year President Jonathan had called for increased Brazilian support to Nigeria for the development of mechanized agriculture, power generation and other sectors in which Brazilians are globally acknowledged experts.
