FIRST BANK ORGANIZES FIRSTBANK-CHINESE BUSINESS FORUM TO STRENGTHEN INTERCONTINENTAL PARTNERSHIPS

As part of its strategic drive to strengthen business partnerships between Nigeria and China, First Bank of Nigeria Limited, recently organised the FirstBank-Chinese Business Forum. http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html

Themed: “Deepening Sino-Nigerian Cooperation,” the Forum was organised as part of the overarching strategy by the Bank to drive business conversations and the promotion of business and economic partnerships between Nigeria and China.

It can be recalled that the Central Bank of Nigeria reached a currency swap agreement with the Peoples Bank of China, in order to ease the burden of the liquidity issues faced by Nigerian business owners and Chinese manufacturers. Notably, FirstBank is among the four banks appointed as settlement banks in the deal.

As such, the FirstBank-Chinese business forum is one of the bank’s efforts to drive better customer services culture as part of its service excellence initiative.

The Group Chairman, CIG Motors, Diana Chen, was among the panelists at the plenary session that discussed the recently signed currency swap deal between the Chinese and the Nigeria governments, Lekki free trade zone, and other collaboration between Nigeria and China.

FirstBank’s Group Executive, Treasury & Financial Institutions, Ini Ebong; Head, Foreign Banking Services, Ayotunde Fanimokun; and Group Head, Products & Marketing Support, Abiodun Famuyiwa, joined in the plenary session with the Chinese industrialist.

Speaking, the Managing Director/CEO, First Bank of Nigeria Limited & Subsidiaries, DrAdesola Adeduntan, said: “The business relationship between China and Nigeria is of great importance to us, hence the establishment of our Representative Office in Beijing, China in 2010.”

Have you heard this? Many Nigerian exporters have been defrauded of huge amount of money in the process of exporting commodities to foreign countries. Do you know why? They were not trained on export operations, management, documentations and the best methods of payment in export trade. This is terrible!!! Nigerians cannot continue to lose money to foreigners in the course of export business. Exporters, why don’t you get a practical manual that teaches the stages of export trade from processing and packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers. It teaches export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade? It is a contemporary step-by-step guide to export trade.
