Nigerian Export Processing Zones Authority

Established to give Nigeria enhanced economic advantage in the West African Economic Zone, the Nigerian Export Processing Zones Authority sought to ensure a greater percentage of FDI in the region. Almost immediately, changing economic policies put its performance at risk.

NAKACHI Consulting worked directly with NEPZA’ leadership to develop Core Competencies and ensure the institutional memory needed in case of a sudden change in leadership. Working with various Consultants, a multi-pronged approach was developed to amend NEPZA’s Mandate and recalibrate its processes.

The times are, well, changing…

NEPZA is presently expanding its service offering to multiple locations nationwide from the more popularly known Calabar Export Processing Zone. It now offers Zones and services beyond manufacturing to Oil & Gas-related Investors. NEPZA is on course to become Africa’s largest Export Process Zones Authority.
