FG, USAID Seal Agreement on Agric Export Expansion

The Executive Director/Chief Executive, Nigerian Exports Promotion Council on Tuesday signed a Memorandum of Understanding on behalf of the Federal Government with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) which was represented by Mr. Michael Harvey, the Nigeria Director of USAID to boost the exportation of agricultural products by 30% within the next three years

According to the MoU, the expansion of the agricultural export will be implemented under the Nigerian Expanded Trade and Transport programme. The programme, which is projected to promote comprehensive economic growth through enhanced trade and transport competitiveness, has three components.

They are transport channel improvements, which will bring together public and private sector stakeholders to strengthen transport route governance on the Lagos-Kano-Jibiya route, policy reform and trade facilitation, and extensive export support.

Harvey said under the MoU, both parties would come up with export development strategies for priority value chains. The partnership, he noted, would provide technical and capacity building support to the network of business growth service providers serving non-oil export firms.
