Fidelity Bank Plc has said it will be hosting the 11th and 12th editions of its Export Management Programme (EMP) to help Nigerian businesses build sustainable export capabilities.
Launched in 2016, the EMP covers topics like export documentation, selection and implementation of supply chain management for exports and application of export development business processes amongst others.

Speaking on the programme, the Managing Director of the bank, Mrs Nneka Onyeali-Ikpe, noted that “as a leading supporter of small businesses, we introduced the EMP five years ago to bridge the knowledge gap in the export business locally and to help participants to compete effectively in the global export market.
“Given the success we have recorded in the course of the programme and following the yearnings of potential participants, we decided to host an edition of the training in Kano for those who are unable to attend the session in Lagos.”
The EMP 11 will be held at the Lagos Business School (LBS) between 4 and 8 October while the EMP 12 will be held in Kano from 11 to 15 October.
The sessions would be facilitated by leading faculty heads from LBS, Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) staff as well as experts in financial management and exports.
On the impact, Onyeali-Ikpe said supporting the non-oil sector of the economy would help to provide “much-needed foreign exchange investments, increasing our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and employment generation.”
