The Nigerian Export-Import Bank has introduced an online platform named ‘cocoaconnectafrica.com’ to establish market connections among farmers, aggregators, and buyers involved in the cocoa value chain across Africa. 


Abubakar Bello, the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of NEXIM Bank, announced this development during the one-day International Cocoa and Chocolate Forum 2024 in Lagos on Thursday.  


The inauguration of the portal was conducted by Mrs Folashade Ambrose-Medebem, the Lagos State Commissioner for Commerce, Cooperative, Trade, and Investment, as part of the conference organized by the International Cocoa Diplomacy in collaboration with NEXIM Bank.
