The two-year plan seeks to implement priority projects in trade, investment, transportation, communication and energy in Africa. 

In Malabo, President Buhari is also expected to hold discussions with Arab leaders, aimed at reviewing agreements to strengthen partnerships that bolster agriculture and infrastructure development in Nigeria through long term concessionary loans and technological skills transfer.

Jointly organised by the African Union Commission and the League of Arab States, the summit focuses on promoting development by strengthening trade, investments, transport, communication and energy among Gulf and African states.
