The value of non-oil exports have this year risen to an all time high of over two point nine billion dollars.

The Nigerian Export Promotion Council attributes it to non-oil export Promotion efforts which helped see the export of over two hundred Nigerian products including manufactured, solid minerals and agricultural products to international markets.

Despite what the council describes as a laudable feat seen this year in the development of non’-oil export growth, it is now to build on existing successes through deeper engagement with critical stakeholders at its export week.

Top on the front burner will be deliberations on current and emerging issues affecting the non-oil export sector. With a view to creating opportunities for non-oil export businesses to thrive.

The NEPC has put in place strategic interventions like the establishment of export warehouses and export for survival campaign amongst others, to drive the country’s non-oil export earnings and boost government’s diversification efforts.

The drive by the Federal Government of Nigeria to enhance the Nations’ earnings is one that has been on for a long time and this is another step to actualise that dream.

The Nigerian Export Promotion Council has been at the forefront of the move which is encapsulated in the various steps taken by the Federal Government to enhance the value Chain of the Agriculture, Mining and Other Sectors.

Such programmes include the Cocoa rebirth programme for Cocoa, the Anchor Borrowers Scheme for Rice  and the National Mining Plan for the Mining Sector.

The success of these programmes and the move by the Federal Government requires serious stakeholders engagement, a situation that is also being addressed by the NEPC through this kind of engagement.
