We are pleased with the platform the expo provides us in demonstrating this and look forward to welcoming businesses and guests at the event”, commented Divisional Head, Brand and Communications, Fidelity Bank Plc, Dr. Meksley Nwagboh.
An important part of the expo is the masterclass to be facilitated by Nduka Udeh, Managing Director/CEO of Export and Sell LLC, where attendees would be guided through the process of developing the necessary competence for selling to the international market and earning foreign exchange.
According to Nwagboh, “As one of the leading banks in the exports space, we felt the need to help attendees at the Anambra Fashion Expo to develop the capacity to compete on the global stage. That is why we are bringing our partner, Export and Sell LLC to walk participants through the nitty gritty of preparing the correct documentation required to export to the United States of America (USA), how to find buyers, how to list products and sell on Amazon, the various licenses needed amongst other aspects of exporting.”

The bank also launched the CBN RT200 FX Policy Sensitisation series in February 2022 to highlight opportunities for importers looking to pivot to exporting with the aid of the policy.
