At the draw ceremony held in Auckland/Tâmaki Makaurau on Saturday, it emerged that Nigeria will play Canada in her first match of the competition to be staged in a total of nine cities (five in Australia and four in New Zealand), and which will boast 32 teams – the biggest in the history of the FIFA Women’s World Cup since it began in China in 1991.

With this background on my mind, I set out to plan on how best to broaden the bilateral relations between Nigeria and Australia and the other nations in the Pacific Region. The fact is that trade relations with this region is negligible and much has to be done to improve this.
