The United States Secretary of Commerce, Ms. Penny Pritzker, Thursday, said more US investments are coming into Nigeria, describing the country as a destination of choice for American investors.

Pritzke, who disclosed this during a bilateral meeting with Nigeria’s Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Olusegun Aganga, in Lagos, said Nigeria currently has enormous investment opportunities which US investors were willing to explore.

Pritzker, who led a delegation of about 25 US investors, mainly in the power sector, to Nigeria, said: “About 100 American businessmen indicated interest in coming with me on this delegation to Nigeria, but we couldn’t accommodate all of them.

“We are aware that there is an industrial revolution going on, which is a very good development. We would like to know more about it so we can be part of it.”

She commended President Goodluck Jonathan for initiating the Nigeria Industrial Revolution Plan, noting that American companies would leverage on it.
