The Acting Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs Mary Warlick, says Nigeria remains a critical priority for the U.S. and Africa bilateral relations.
Warlick said this during a meeting with the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu in Washington.
A statement in Abuja by Director of Press in the Ministry, Idang Alibi, Warlick commended Nigeria on the significant steps taken in the Oil and Gas Industry reforms.
Responding, Kachikwu said the Federal Government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari had set out plans that had to be made over the next four years.
He outlined steps the ministry had taken in achieving this through the continuous implementation of the 7BigWins – the Nigerian Petroleum roadmap; which focuses on stabilising the business environment, enshrining openness and transparency, developing and entrenching new policies and regulations.
