The Nigeria Import Export Bank (NEXIM) has announced plans to train 5 million exporters in conjunction with Fidelity Bank and others.

A portal has been created towards this end, and it will be managed by Nexim Academy (NEXA) with Fidelity Bank and Sapphital.

The training will be on how to take advantage of the existing export value chain to earn foreign exchange (forex) for themselves and the country.

Speaking at the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony in Abuja recently, the Managing Director, NEXIM BANK, Mr. Abba Bello, said : “Nigeria’s economic situation and the need for quick diversification prompted NEXIM to partner with Fidelity Bank and Sapphital to launch the training portal”

He added:”Through our Partnership with Sapphital Academy, we came up with the idea for NEXA, and it has attracted over 4,400 participants, with over 500 receiving certificates”

To draw interest to the training programme, the Managing Director stated that social media networks are used to raise awareness, but partnering with Fidelity Bank will help us further publicize and scale up the platform.

The aim of NEXA, he said is to provide training and resources to exporters, as well as other key Stakeholders in the export value chain.
Also, NEXA serves as a platform for exporters to meet, exchange knowledge and information, and connect with strategic Partners, such as banks.
By bringing banks, the Managing Director said NEXA’s potential for growth will be realised.
In her speech at the occasion, the Managing Director, Fidelity Bank, Mrs. Nneka Onyeali-Ikpe, said that her bank has increased awareness for Nigeria’s export products globally through programmes such as the Fidelity International Trade Creative Connect (FITCC), adding that her bank has also invested in Nigeria’s export industry for several years and had trained over 2,000 exporters.
