Following President Muhammadu Buhari's recent visit to Turkey to boost bilateral trade, 23 Turkish electrical manufacturing companies will visit Nigeria this week to meet buyers and distributors.

The Managing Director of Naijalink Ltd., Mrs Thessa Bagu, told the Newsmen in Lagos that the visit would strengthen trade and economic relations between Nigeria and Turkey.

Naijalinks, a local firm, connected foreign companies willing to do business in Nigeria to local buyers or sellers.

"Following renewed Turkish-Nigerian commitments to boost bilateral trade, a Turkish electronics and electrical goods trade mission will, this week, be visiting Nigeria for meetings with local buyers and distributors.

"This trade mission is coming only weeks after President Buhari visited Turkey to strengthen trade and economic relations between Nigeria and Turkey.

"Under the ambit of the Turkish Electro Technology Exporters' Association (TET) - a professional body representing over 7,500 companies - the trade mission will showcase advanced Turkish white goods, electronics, cables and electrical production and distribution equipment," she said.

Bagu said that the mission would comprise Turkish manufacturers, representing companies across consumer electronics and appliances, lighting, cables, electrical transmission and distribution equipment, industrial automation products and specialised cables.

She said that the mission, to be led by the Vice Chairman of TET Board, Mr Mehmet Kavaklioglu, would hold pre-scheduled meetings with Nigerian business operators at Eko Hotel and suites, Lagos, on Thursday.

According to her, Turkey's fast-growing electronics, white goods and electrical components sector annually exports over 10 billion dollars in goods to the global market.

Buhari went on a four-day working visit to Turkey on Oct. 18.

The president participated in the ninth D-8 Summit in Istanbul on Oct. 20 and held bilateral meetings with some member-countries.
