The Federal Government will help to facilitate the exportation of products from the Cross River Garments Factory to international markets.
The Executive Director of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Mr Segun Awolowo, who spoke during a workshop for staff of the Cross River State Garment Factory in Calabar, said NEPC and the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) will collaborate in that direction.
The workshop exposed participants to the importance of good packaging to meet international standards for exports and building export capacity for the maximization of AGOA.
Represented by the Regional Co-ordinator, NEPC, South West, Mr Babatunde Faleke, Awolowo reaffirmed government’s commitment to support Cross River State Governor Prof. Ben Ayade’s developmental vision in promoting the factory among others.
A resource person at the training and AGOA representative, Mrs Bolanle Emmanuel, said AGOA sought to forge stronger commercial ties between Nigeria and other qualified African countries, and the United State, while it helped to integrate Nigeria into the global economy.
