The Small and Medium Enterprise Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN) on Tuesday in Abuja trained 30 owners of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) on product standards and quality improvement.
Olawale Fasanya, the Director-General of SMEDAN, said that the training would boost the economic development of the country.
Monday Ewans, the agency’s Director of Enterprises Development and Promotion, who represented Fasanya said that the programme was facilitated by the Commonwealth Secretariat.
While identifying some of the challenges confronting MSMEs in the country and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fasanya said it is for this reason that the training is crucial.
“Part of the complexities that the post-pandemic era has added are in the areas of regulations, technology use or adoption and access to markets among others.
“This training is therefore another opportunity to enrich our MSMEs and ensure that their products are of good quality and compliant with relevant regulations.
“I urge all relevant agencies to build the capacities of Nigerian MSMEs so they can take advantage of every open window,’’ he said.
