The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Chinese Guangzhou Port Authority to improve the efficiency of port operations in the African country.

The joint promotion of effective logistics through information sharing forms part of the agreement signed during the ongoing African Regional Conference of the International Association of Ports and Harbours in Abuja, Nigeria. The MoU with African ports is a significant approach for Guangzhou Port to implement the ‘Belt and Road’ initiative and promote international exchanges and cooperation. In the future, Guangzhou Port will actively explore practical cooperation in many fields such as economic, trade, talent exchanges and training with African ports.
