ABOUT THE SEMINAR
To help our customers increase their export business potentials as well as to bolster their foreign currency earning capacity, we entered a strategic partnership with Export & Sell, a trade enabling platform-as – a- service, to facilitate the listing of Nigerian businesses on Amazon as well as to provide access to other US off-take markets including African Stores, Wallmart, SamsClub, Target, etc.
This partnership would provide guidance for businesses in areas of capacity development, securing regulatory approvals from local bodies (like NAFDAC and SON as well US agencies like the FDA) and also enable them export their products to the USA, sell on Amazon, find buyers, distribute and warehouse their products in the USA.
With American companies often requiring products from Africa where the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) allows them to bring in over 6,400 products into the USA duty-free, Nigerian businesses operating in the following industries are strategically positioned to earn increased FX revenue:
- Food and Beverage Industries
- Fashion and Textile Industries
- Leather and Foot Ware Industries
- Furniture and Wood Work Industries
- Art and Craft Industries
- Beauty and Cosmetic Industries
- Pet Products (Excluding Meat Related Products)
- Building Material Industries
- Light Equipment Industries
- Chemical and Petrochemical Industries
