CHAPTER ONE

1.1 INTRODUCTION

The roles of commercial banks in our modern economy cannot be over emphasized, commercial banks in Nigeria as a financial institution helps in financing the exporting sector of the economy, by lending out short-term loans to those into manufacturing, exporting, trading and industries.

Lack of bank credit (loan and advances) in our economy has brought about low rate of economic growth and diversification of most industries in Nigeria. The availability of bank credits to those in trade determines what is produced and how much of that product is produced. Therefore, commercial banks perform their important role of financial assistance by rendering important services by granting (loans and advances) to various sectors of the Nigerian economy. Commercial banks support the economy by serving the credit needs of their customary and providing a safe place for the cash balance. Of individual credit activities on the export sector of the Nigerian economy, there are general statements which guide or channel actions in decision making about the export sector advance and investment of commercial bank.

Every year, the Central Bank as part of their duty in controlling monetary policy, publish credit policy guidelines for the fiscal year.

The aspect of the guidelines that the commercial bank covered are as follows:

i.            Aggregate credit ceiling

ii.           Sectoral allocation of commercial bank activities on the export sector (loan and                 advances)

iii.         Capital fund adequacy

iv.         Reserve requirement

v.          Interest rate on export sector

vi.         Commercial bank equity holding in company

The importance of export trade to economic growth cannot be overemphasized, this trade goes beyond the national boundaries of moving goods from a country to another in order to earn foreign exchange. Export are the goods and services which a country sends to other countries abroad in return for some payment made in foreign exchange.

Over the years, Nigeria has engaged herself in international trade (export trade), which is very important in earnings of foreign exchange, which helps to contribute to the growth and development of the economy. In some economy, export trade has been found to perform as the engine of growth especially through high productivity export, a nation can take advantage of international division of labour and procure desired goods and services from abroad at considerable savings in term of inputs of productivity resources, thereby helping to increase the efficiency of export industry.

A study in sub-Saharan shows that economic growth is stimulated by export trade, the federal government in 1979, created a package of incentive for the export sectors, these include directive to bank to streamline credit facilities to exporters, apart from the commercial banks granting credit to exporting sectors (oil and non-oil sector) in Nigeria, there are other institutional bodies put to engage in financing export trade in Nigeria such as Nigeria Export-Import Bank (NEXIM), Nigeria Export Promotion Council (NEPC), the Nigeria Export Processing Zone Authority (NEPZA) and others.
