NEPZA, Customs partner on non-oil economic diversification
The Nigerian Export Processing Zones Authority (NEPZA), is to partner with the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), to diversify the economy via developing the non-oil sector.
According to stakeholders, this would further boost the nation’s economy, as well as ensuring food security in that, the Customs, as the chief enabler for the use of free trade zones (FTZ), would ease operations at the various zones in the country.
The Managing Director, NEPZA, Emmanuel Jime, who stated this recently, while on a courtesy visit to the Comptroller General of Customs, Hameed Ali, in Abuja, said both agencies are critical to the nation’s industrialisation drive.
The NEPZA boss called for the continued training of Customs operatives on free trade and special economic zone matters, even as he advocated inclusion of free trade zone training in the curricular of Customs.
