About ANE

FORMATION

The idea to establish the Association of Nigerian Exporters (ANE) was conceived by some far-sighted Nigerian businesspersons in 1981 as a response to the series of trade inquiries received during their trade missions to Senegal, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Ghana, as well as the subsequent ones to the States of New York, Georgia and Pennsylvania in the United States of America.

The Association was formally inaugurated on August 8, 1984. 

STATUS
