Nigeria Validates UNIDO Supported Export Control Plan

ABUJA 06 March 2018 – The Federal Government of Nigeria has validated the Integrated Export Plan, officially presented to the Honourable Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Audu Ogbeh, in February 2018.

The Integrated Export Plan was developed by the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Zero Rejects with technical support from United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) within the context of the European Union funded National Quality Infrastructure Project for Nigeria (NQIP).

The purpose of the Integrated Export Control Plan is to assist the fulfillment of the EU conditions necessary for lifting the ban on Nigeria’s dried beans and to assist the establishment of a system of trust for Nigeria’s agricultural commodities for export and local consumption.

The Inter-Ministerial Committee on Zero Rejects is co-chaired by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD) and the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment (FMITI) and was inaugurated by FMARD upon the mandate of Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to investigate the issues on export rejects in agricultural commodities.
