The Nigerian export promotion council is working towards deepening engagement with critical stakeholders and broadening the penetration of non-oil exports commodities into the international markets.
This will be the focus of the discussions at an export week with the theme ‘export for survival optimizing Nigeria’s non-oil export
The value of non-oil exports has this year seen an all-time high of over 2.9 billion dollars.
The Nigerian export promotion Council attributes this to its non-oil export promotion efforts which helped see the export of over 200
products including those manufactured solid minerals and agriculture to International markets.
Despite what the council describes as a loadable feat this year in the development of non-oil expert growth, it is now to build on existing successes through deeper engagements with critical stakeholders at its export week.
The ultimate goal is to ensure that the events that have been lined up will become an avenue for massive recruitment of people into the non export net.
Top on the front burner will be the deliberations on current and emerging issues affecting the non-oil export sector with a view to creating opportunities for normal export businesses to thrive.
The NEPC has put in place strategic interventions like the establishment of export warehouses and Export for survival campaign amongst others. This is to drive the country’s not all export earnings and boost government’s diversification efforts.
