A world-class commercial bank, Fidelity Bank Plc, has reaffirmed its determination in boosting the capacities of exporters in Nigeria with the fourth stream of the Export Management Program (EMP) scheduled to hold at the Lagos Business School (LBS) before the end of February, 2017, Tectono Business Review gathered.

Yes, the Export Management Program (EMP) is the brainchild of the partnership between the bank, LBS and the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC). Tectono Business Review gathered that the programme is designed to provide impactful, world-class training needed to improve the competitiveness of Nigerian enterprises, particular export-oriented businesses and the associated value players in the global market.

The Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Fidelity Bank Plc, Nnamdi Okonkwo, while speaking on the programme said: “We are doing the tough job of financing SMEs in Nigeria. A sizeable number have export potential. It is therefore a natural fit for us to partner with the LBS and the NEPC to make this capacity building initiative happen.

“A well-diversified Nigerian economy is germane to economic growth and development. When the economy grows, businesses flourish and banking thrives better. It’s a win-win for all”.
