The National Maritime Transport Policy being developed by Nigeria is of interest in Belgium for windows of investment opportunity.

Executive officers of the Port of Antwerp International stated this in Lagos during a meeting with the Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Bashir Jamoh. Jamoh said there were huge opportunities for investment in wreck removal and recycling, stressing that the Federal Government was planning a coordinated wreck removal policy to drive investment in the area.

The visiting team of executives from the Port of Antwerp International had sought an audience with the NIMASA Director-General to follow up investment interests in Nigeria.

The Managing Director of APECAntwerp/Flanders Port Training Centre and Port of Antwerp International, Mr. Kristof Waterschoot, and Director at Port of Antwerp International, Mr. Mario Lievens, said they were also in Nigeria to promote new partnership opportunities, especially in the area of training.

Waterschoot and Lievens, who hosted Jamoh at the Nigerian Belgian Chamber of Commerce, Onikan, Lagos said their mission was to discuss projects of interest, including inland ports, and to strengthen the relationship between the Port of Antwerp and NIMASA, particularly in the areas of training, technical support, and cooperation.
