Exporting from Nigeria
Nigeria is a country naturally blessed and endowed with items that are in serious demand in the export markets around the world. We are not only blessed with solid minerals (besides crude oil) we are also blessed with good climate and weather conditions to support the growth of commodities that are industrially useful in the developed nations. No wonder an Asian will come into this country with a briefcase and 2-5 yrs down the line, he would have become an employer of labour by harnessing our resources to build wealth for himself via export business opportunities in Nigeria.

Export Business Options In Nigeria

The Non-oil export business is still at its very primitive stage in Nigeria with a very high potential for growth. Since the export market is all the countries around the world, the market is therefore inexhaustible (especially for Agricultural commodities and other consumables), therefore there space for everyone that will like to earn foreign exchange via the export business. If you are interested in the export business you can start as an Armchair Exporter, or enter the business as a Part-time Exporter and finally as a Fulltime Exporter. If you enter as an armchair exporter then you should grow to become a part-time exporter and finally as a full time exporter depending on your strategy.
