NEPC, Fidelity Bank, Plan Export Summit

NEPC, Fidelity Bank, Plan Export SummitIn a bid to promote export business in Nigeria, Fidelity Bank, Nigeria Export Promotion Council and Lagos Business School are collaborating to organize the fourth stream of the Export Management Programme at the LBS later in February.

The Export Management Programme, launched in 2016, is designed to provide impactful, world-class training needed to improve the competitiveness of Nigerian enterprises, specifically export-oriented businesses and the associated value players in the global market.

A statement from the bank quoted its Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Nnamdi Okonkwo, as saying, “We are doing the tough job of financing the Small and Medium Enterprises in Nigeria. A sizeable number have export potential.

“It was therefore a natural fit for us to partner the LBS and the NEPC to make this capacity building initiative happen. A well-diversified Nigerian economy is germane to economic growth and development. When the economy grows, business flourishes and banking thrives better. It’s a win-win for all.”

The statement said the previous EMP streams were oversubscribed, underscoring the level of significance that people and organizations attached to the programme.

It read in part, “At the completion of each stream, participants were awarded an Export Manager Certificate, including a post-programme Export Marketing Plan project.

“The curriculum for the programme covered areas such as Nigerian exportable items and locations; incentives for exports, domestic policies and export institutions; product development processes for export; exploring solid minerals for export and exporting services. Others included exporting services; business negotiation skills; roles of government inspection agents; role of Federal Produce Inspection Services; transportation and logistics management; export financing and documentation; and the African Growth and Opportunity Act.”
