LCCI’s export management programme commences
LAHORE: The Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s (LCCI) six-day training programme “Certificate in Export Management” has started with an aim to equip young entrepreneurs and potential export managers with exporting skills. Around 100 young entrepreneurs, belonging to various industrial sectors, have got themselves registered to take part in the training programme.
LCCI President Sheikh Muhammad Arshad said that the programme has been designed to make participants capable of independently starting their own export businesses and ultimately play a significant role in enhancing the country’s exports, which remain stagnant since long due to various reasons.
Extremely skilled trainers well versed with their subject and having vast practical knowledge of their field would conduct the training programme. Participants would be awarded certificates and LCCI is optimistic that the said certificates would be welcomed by the employers while appointing export managers in their companies.
After highly successful introduction of IT training courses, LCCI had taken this valued initiative that would help potential entrepreneurs and exporters develop necessary skills to emerge as a successful exporter. LCCI has already organised a similar export-training programme in 2015, which earned great reputation for the institution.
This programme would have some distinct features, as it would be a great mix of theory and practice, edifying the participants with practical aspects of exports would be highly emphasised. LCCI is of the view that the only way to eradicate unemployment from the country is to educate people with practical knowledge of starting and running their own businesses, which is only possible through Industry–Academia linkage.
A language course is also in progress while it is also planning web graphic training programmes that would also be launched very soon. Considering the rising demand from the industrialists and traders, LCCI has expressed its intention to continue such training programmes of practical nature in future as well to provide not only trained professionals to the industry but also encourage new people to start their own ventures to create employment opportunities in the country.
People from the industry and academia have highly appreciated this initiative and lauded LCCI for organising such a marvellous programme, which was a dire need of the hour.
