President Muhammadu Buhari met with international investors at the Nigeria International Economic Partnership Forum in New York and described the US as Nigeria's main trading partner.
Buhari who spoke at the meeting with the Business Council for International Understanding (BCIU) stated that Nigeria exported over $1.69 billion worth of goods in 2020.
According to the president, the exports were primarily made up of crude oil and other petroleum products.
"Nigeria's capability is not just limited to the oil and gas industry but a variety of other sectors that hold notable potential.
"We are the largest economy in Africa and have over 200 million-strong consumer market that is home to a range of attractive opportunities in sectors such as agriculture, healthcare, light manufacturing, infrastructure development, and technology.
"The beauty of this forum is that the Ministers responsible for all of these sectors are here today, as are some of Nigeria's premier business leaders who are already excelling in these spaces", Buhari said.
