The import and export Institute is working to become the only Professional Body responsible for man power development, continuous training and education of people involved in International trade, freight forwarding, shipping, import, export and International marketing. The dynamic nature of International trade, the internet revolution and globalization has made it compulsory for the government, public and private corporations and organizations to employ qualified practitioners, managers and academicians to manage their import and export positions and profiles.
There is a shift in the economic policy of Nigeria to concentrate on non oil export, tourism, sports and services. There is the great need for the government to commission exports practitioners and qualified professionals to conduct research necessary to sustain the economy of Nigeria and Africa over a long period of time.

Needless mentioning that the potentials of Nigeria are so enormous that the government must commission the Institute researchers into realizing the great non-oil potentials of Nigeria. This is abundant in all the states of the Federation, from Groundnut, palm kernel, fish, coal, gold, cocoa, sugarcane, cassava, mango, guava, pawpaw, to sports, services man-power, hospitality and tourism. These abundant resources must be exploited, packaged and exported to earn the desired foreign exchange in Nigeria. The potentials must be harnessed and trained. The vibrant Institute is willing to collaborate with all relevant government agencies and partner with the government on how the export potentials of Nigeria will be realized and the benefit used for the infrastructural development of Nigeria as outline by this present Administration and all the relevant State government and agencies.
