Fidelity Bank has demonstrated its resolve to promote and catalyze export businesses in Nigeria with the tenth stream of the Export Management Program (EMP) scheduled to hold at the Lagos Business School (LBS) from June 14 – 18, 2021.
Recent developments in the global market and local oil sector have heightened the need for Nigeria to diversify its economy away from oil. Exports help improve foreign exchange earnings, create employment opportunities, engender wealth creation and sustainable poverty reduction.
To boost non-oil exports and build sustainable export capabilities for Nigerian businesses, Fidelity Bank Plc, Lagos Business School (LBS), and Nigerian Export Promotions Council (NEPC) initiated the EMP.
The 5-day programme is designed to equip participants with the knowledge, tools, and skills required to develop their export business in line with global standards and take advantage of the AFCFTA.
Launched in 2016, the EMP is a sector focused capacity building programme aimed specifically to deliver impactful, world-class export management education to aspiring and existing players in the nonoil export sector of the Nigerian economy.
The programme which prepares participants for effective play in the international non-oil export markets and the larger export markets in general, has continued to raise the bar of capacity building in exports in Nigeria.
“Its unique curriculum is structured to take participants through courses bordering strategically on product development for export; developing linkages with customers in importing countries; understanding the various export processes, accompanying documentation and other requirements in Nigeria and key importing countries; export products storage; quality assurance, branding and packaging, sourcing and supply chain management, logistics and shipping, export finance, business ethics, etc,” noted a statement by the organisation.
