The Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) on Friday trained 45 newly registered non-oil exporters in Enugu State on export procedures documentation, certification and other needs.

The Assistant Director, NEPC, Ngozi Ibe, said that the training was carried out under the Export Clinic of the council which was specially designed to build the capacities of trainees.

Ms Ibe said that the training covered all the basics of the non-oil export sector in the country.

“The clinic will unveil the myriad of benefits that exporters stand to enjoy in the course of exporting formally,” she said.

She said that the NEPC had over the years worked to achieve its mandate by coordinating and harmonizing export development and promotion activities in the country.

“The NEPC has taken the lead in all national export programmes and interfacing with international trade agencies on cooperation and capacity building.

“We recognise that international trade is quite different from local trading with several unique features and intricacies that set it apart.

“To this end, it is quite necessary for potential exporters and newly registered exporters to be guided through the process of exporting from Nigeria in order to maximize opportunities and avoid common mistakes,” Ms Ibe said.

Also, the South-East Regional Coordinator, NEPC, Arnold Jackson, said the mandate of the council was to spearhead the diversification of the Nigerian economy by expanding and increasing non-oil exports for sustainable and inclusive economic growth.

Mr Jackson said that the government had actively sought to facilitate export of commodities which he described as crucial for the economy.

The regional coordinator said that the council was always available to assist current and potential non-oil exporters to succeed.

In an interview, one of the participants, Nwamaka Eneh, applauded the council for their vibrant activities in the state.

Ms Eneh said that she had never known about the activities of the NEPC until recently, adding that it was a new dawn for potential exporters in the region.
