BEVERLY HILLS, March 12, (THEWILL) – One of Nigeria's most capitalised financial institutions, Fidelity Bank Plc, is set to hold a one-day workshop/training on exports in line with its commitment to support the diversification of Nigeria's monolithic economy. The event being organised in conjunction with Koinonia Ventures Limited.

According to the Deposit Money Bank, DMB, the workshop could not have come at a better time especially following the growing emphasis on export and import substitution.

The conference, which is themed: “Export Readiness Workshop”, is scheduled to take place at the Sheraton Hotels Lagos on Wednesday, March 16, 2016.

The workshop is expected to bring together subject matter experts, government agencies and private sector players in export business, to share knowledge and insights on the key trends and opportunities in the non-oil export sector.

Koinonia Ventures is Nigeria's foremost trade facilitation/strategy consulting firm. Incorporated in 1990 with operational bases in Abuja, Lagos and Ekiti States, the company has since metamorphosed into a global player in international trade business especially with its active involvement in the marketing of Nigerian brands to the international community.
