The National Action Committee on African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement has disclosed plans to achieve economically viable communities in Nigeria by growing its intra-Africa export trade volume to $50bn by 2035.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President and Secretary, National Action Committee on AfCTA, Francis Anatogu, made the disclosure in an AfCFTA overview presentation to the media in Lagos.
In another development, the Federal Government has said Nigeria’s economy has been diversified and no more depended on oil.
Minister of State for Finance, Budget and National Planning, Clem Agba, made this known in Abuja in his presentation at a public hearing organised by the House of Representatives.
He said the non-oil sector now contributed more to the Gross Domestic Product, stressing that the digital economy now contributed more than oil.
