This new initiative seeks to position Nigeria as an export hub for talent outsourcing in Africa following the example of India, Bangladesh, Mexico and The Philippines.
The unveiling of the programme took place at the Microsoft Office in New York, United States of America, on Friday, September 22, 2023.
According to the Minister, NATEP will serve as a dedicated entity to address the unique needs and challenges faced by the talent and service export industry.
The programme will lay special emphasis on enhancing competitiveness, fostering innovation, and driving sustainable growth through trade in services.The minister further noted that NATEP is part of the strategy towards achieving President Tinubu’s agenda for job creation.The NATEP initiative will target the creation of 1 million in-demand jobs across Nigeria, over a 5-year period.
