EXPORT COUNCIL SEEKS SINGLE-WINDOW TRADING FOR NIGERIAN EXPORTERS

nepc
The Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), has called for trade facilitation and single-window for Nigerian exporters. This was made known by the Director General and Chief Executive Officer of NEPC, Olusegun Awolowo, during the inauguration of the Nigerian-UN/CEFACT trade facilitation committee in Lagos on a few days ago.

Hmmm!!! Folks, let us say the truth and shame the devil. Many Nigerian non-oil products exporters have been defrauded of huge amount of money in the process of exporting agricultural commodities and solid minerals 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, would you like to keep on being scammed? Why don’t you get a practical manual that explains the stages of export trade from processing and packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers? It explains export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade? Yes, it is a contemporary step-by-step guide to export trade. It tells all the contemporary dynamics in export trade. To get it, click on this link: http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html

Awolowo said the single window for exports would open up opportunities for Nigeria by increasing benefits from international trade and contributing to economic growth.

He said, “Establishing a single window for exports has been an ongoing discussion in Nigeria for quite some time. Despite its numerous benefits in addressing efficiency, the evident hope among policymakers, and the strong desire of exporters, it has remained a major challenge in the trade facilitation agenda of the country.

“It is a key instrument for creating a more conducive trading environment, considering how procedures and controls governing the movement of goods across national borders can be improved to reduce associated cost burdens and maximise efficiency while safeguarding legitimate objectives.”

Awolowo added that the inauguration of the Nigerian-UN/CEFACT trade facilitation committee marks a turning point in the country’s quest to re-establish a collaboration between the public and organised private sector.

During his speech, the Group Chairman, Manufacturers Association of Nigeria, Export Promotion Group, Chief Ede Dafinone, urged the Federal Government to reopen the borders for genuine businesses to thrive.

Fellow Nigerians, are you aware that our crude oil will soon become useless? Yes, it will, in no distant time, become valueless owing to the fact that the countries that rely on it as their only source of energy are developing more affordable alternative sources of energy. When this finally happens, what will we do? How are we currently preparing for this imminent economic doom? Which other sector will continue to stabilize our economy? Nigerians, the only solution is developing the agricultural sector. In fact, this is the only solution. Very soon, the major source of revenue will become agriculture and agro-exports. How are you positioning yourself to play big in agro-export business? Why don’t you get a practical manual that explains the stages of export trade from processing and packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers? Yes, arm yourself with the contemporary trends in export trade. This manual explains export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade?

In Dafinone’s own word, “For us as exporters, the more simplification we can have in the process of export, the easier it will be to get our goods across to our customers on the West African coast, Europe and America.

“The single window follows on the lines of the government of ease of doing business. The government is trying to simplify the business processes surrounding export in order to encourage exporters and also to encourage non-oil export so we diversify our economy. We were told the borders would be closed initially for a month and later three months and now we are not sure when it would be reopened.”

He said the organised private sector would continue to urge the Federal Government to open the borders for genuine exports. “We sympathise with the government and understand the problems they have with the influx of illegally imported items but there are still a lot of manufacturers within our membership that are genuine exporters,” he said.
