PEBEC would also enforce simplification as well as streamlining the export, import documentation and procedures leveraging on technology with a view to removing administrative bottlenecks.

According to the president, “we hope to achieve a reduction in the cost of doing business in Nigeria. We are also looking at the area of improving efficiency in business registration, entry process including visa reforms, land reform registrations and contract agreements.’’

The Minister of State for Industry, Trade and Investment, Hajia Aisha Abubakar, who represented Buhari said that government in its plan to develop and promote the activities of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) has expanded the number of participating agencies in the Nigeria Enterprises Development Programme [NEDEP).

Other participating agencies include Nigeria Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC), Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) and the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC).
