By Johnson Atoukudu:

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is scheduled to depart Nigeria on Tuesday to join international leaders in Paris, France on Thursday. The purpose of his visit is to participate in a Summit where a New Global Financial Pact will be reviewed and signed. This pact aims to prioritize support and investment for vulnerable countries facing the devastating impacts of climate change, energy crises, and the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The disclosure was made through a statement issued by Dele Alake, the Special Adviser to the President on Special Duties, Communication, and Strategy. The two-day Summit, taking place on June 22 and 23, will focus on various aspects such as restoring fiscal space for countries experiencing short-term financial challenges, particularly those heavily indebted. It will also explore innovative financing options for countries vulnerable to climate change, promote development in low-income countries, and encourage investment in environmentally-friendly infrastructure for the energy transition in emerging and developing economies.

President Tinubu, alongside other global leaders, multilateral institutions, financial experts, and economists, will adopt a comprehensive approach to address the economic recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing poverty rates. The aim is to provide access to finance and investment that will facilitate inclusive growth.

The Summit, hosted by President Emmanuel Macron of France, will be held at Palais Brongniart. President Tinubu will be accompanied by members of the Presidential Policy Advisory Council and senior government officials. He is expected to return to Abuja on Saturday.
