The World Trade Organization (WTO) has inaugurated a $1.2m standards trade development facility in Nigeria to strengthen food safety, among others.

The standards trade development facility is a global initiative that seeks to strengthen food safety, and animal and plant health capacity in developing countries by encouraging the use of good practices.

While speaking during the event on Tuesday, the Director General of the World Trade Organization, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, explained that although Nigeria has huge potential in the production and export of Cowpea and sesame, the rejection of the two products remains a huge challenge owing to poor transportation and storage of the agricultural products to other parts of the world.
