NCS advises LCCI to promote Made-in-Nigeria goods

By on May 19, 2013

Victor Gbemudu, the Zonal Coordinator of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Zone `A’, Lagos, has advised the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) to promote Made-in-Nigeria goods at the 2013 Lagos International Trade Fair.

The advice was given by Gbemudu who is an Assistant Comptroller-General of Customs, in an interview on Thursday in Lagos.

“We believe so much in trade facilitation. This regime, under the Comptroller- General, Alhaji Abdullahi Dikko, has been canvassing for the patronage of Made-in-Nigeria goods.

“We want to encourage the Lagos Chamber of Commerce to support the Transformation Agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan through the coming trade fair.

“I also encourage the organisers to use the trade fair to create a forum where Made-in-Nigeria goods will be displayed abundantly,’’ he said.

Gbemudu said that the service was ready to partner with LCCI to ensure there was high demand by foreigners for locally manufactured goods during and after the fair.

He said that the Nigerian Export Promotion Council had been working hard to ensure that duties on exports were greatly reduced.

According to him, it will be a source of encouragement if more local manufacturers are able to export their goods.

The 2013 Lagos International Trade Fair will hold from the Nov. 1 to Nov. 10 and the chamber has called for local and foreign exhibitors.
