Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Tuesday, expressed delight over the World Bank’s latest “Doing Business” report, that saw Nigeria moving up 24 places to 145th, and recognising the country as one of the top 10 most improved economies in the world.
He congratulated all stakeholders who worked with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government, to achieve what he described as “significant result”.
Osinbajo’s position was contained in a statement made available to Journalists by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande.
He said: “I welcome Nigeria’s improved performance. We are one of the top 10 reforming economies in the world in 2017. After a decade-long decline in Nigeria’s rankings last year, the Government recorded a modest increase.
“This year, Mr. President set us an ambitious target of moving up twenty places in the rankings – I am delighted that we have exceeded his goal.
“Improving the business environment is at the heart of the Buhari administration’s reform agenda. We are reinforcing our economic turnaround by a vigorous and active implementation of the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, so businesses operating in Nigeria can thrive and be competitive globally.
“For the first time, coordinated efforts across various levels of governments have been undertaken to make it easier to do business in Nigeria.

“I commend all stakeholders who worked with us to achieve this significant result, particularly the National Assembly, Lagos and Kano State Governments, and the private sector.”
Osinbajo said the present administration would continue to ensure that SMEs operating in Nigeria, find it easier to do business.
He said the government’s ultimate success would be the testimonials received from businesses all across the country.
Speaking further, he noted  that the report endorsed the direction that government has been taking to improve the ease of doing business in Nigeria, over the last 12 to 18 months.
The Vice President added that, although the government has started getting positive feedback, there are still a lot of work to be done before the full impact of the reforms are felt by all Nigerians.
He stated: “Some of our critical ongoing reforms include a new sub-national ‘ease of doing business’ project being implemented in conjunction with all the States and the FCT, to replicate similar reforms across the country.
“We are again collaborating with the National Assembly to deliver an Omnibus Bill to jointly furnish a more business-friendly legal framework for Nigerian businesses in the future.
“Furthermore, the Federal Executive Council has approved the concession of our major International Airports, which will be fast-tracked to enable easier movement of persons.
“We are also nearing the implementation stage of our National Trading Platform, to ensure our cross-border trading is more efficient, while collaborating with other countries to safeguard our security.
“This policy will also be supported by ongoing reform efforts, to simplify trading within Nigeria, whether that be the ease of trade in goods, regulatory approvals, or the protection of intellectual property.”
