President Bola Ahmed Tinubu of Nigeria will attend a summit in Paris, France, on Thursday, June 22, designed to fortify global financial support for vulnerable nations grappling with the fallout of climate change, the energy crisis, and the ongoing ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The two-day summit, scheduled for June 22-23 and convened by French President Emmanuel Macron, seeks to restore fiscal stability to countries facing acute short-term financial distress, particularly the most indebted. It aims to galvanize innovative financial solutions for countries susceptible to climate change and spur development in low-income countries.

A key focus will be the promotion of investment in environmentally-friendly infrastructure to aid the energy transition in emerging and developing economies.

The gathering at Palais Brongniart will draw an array of world leaders, financial experts, and economists, as well as representatives from international institutions. Participants, including President Tinubu, are set to take a comprehensive view of global recovery efforts in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing poverty rates. Discussions will center around enabling broader access to finance and investment to foster inclusive growth.

Accompanying President Tinubu will be members of the Presidential Policy Advisory Council and other senior government officials. The President is set to return to Abuja on Saturday following the conclusion of the summit.
