It’s indeed a good news as Fidelity Bank has reiterated its resolve to continue to promote and catalyze export businesses in Nigeria with the fourth stream of the Export Management Program (EMP) scheduled to hold at the Lagos Business School (LBS) later this month.
You will agree with me that the place of Bank in SME’s cannot be over emphasis. However, it is good news that Fidelity Bank is making effort with other bodies to boom the export industries.
The Export Management Program (EMP) is the off-shoot of the collaborative efforts between the Bank, LBS and the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC).
It 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.
Speaking about the EMP, Fidelity Bank CEO, Nnamdi Okonkwo said “we are doing the tough job of financing SMEs in Nigeria. A sizeable number have export potential. It was, 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”.
