The Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) has launched the maiden training programme tagged: ‘Zero to Export Project’ for infant exporters.
Its Chief Executive Officer, Mr Segun Awolowo, said the training was timely, coming at a time the prices of oil was dwindling.
Awolowo, who was represented by Mr. Olajide Ibrahim, a Director in the Council, urged the first set of participants to take the training serious.
“One of the limiting factors we have in non-oil exports is the dearth of salient information. So we can say that this project is a timely one, which will help youths and graduates, and even retirees to gain the basic knowledge in exporting business,” he said.
He explained that there is going to be a curriculum for the training project, and also technical sessions where participants can ask questions.
