Nigeria's Position on Imports.

The Nigerian Embassy in Washington, D.C. released the following statements during a
recent press briefing. "The directives issued recently by the Central Bank of
Nigeria have been misunderstood and misinterpreted by the Western media. This
statement is therefore meant to clarify the position.

Nigeria has not banned or frozen all imports into the country, nor has she given any
directives which would jeopardise existing contractual obligations regarding foreign
payments. Far from it. The instructions issued recently to commerical banks in
Nigeria by the Central Bank of Nigeria were meant to enable it to set aside a brief
period of a week or so during which it would compile payment commitments with its all
trading partners regarding Letters of Credit, Bill for Collection, Usuance Bills. To
do so, it sought the cooperation of all Commercial Banks in the country. The action
amounts to some form of Stock Taking.

As regards the position of Nigeria's External Reserve, the situation is far from the
gloomy picture painted by the Western Media. Nigeria is in a position to pay all
oLtstanding ccmnitments in the normal way. In addition, OPEC is making arrangements
to strengthen generally the financial position of its members including Nigeria,
thereby offering an effective challenge to the destructive forces now at work."

Secretary Block Lauds Agnet System

At a press conference held in Lincoln, Nebraska on March 23, Agricultural Secretary
John Block praised the joint computer project between the University of Nebraska and
the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS).

Secretary Block joined University and government officials (including Governor Thone)
in announcing the link-up between the university-sponsored AGNET computer system and
the FAS, which provides trade leads for U.S. exporters.

Elock said the computer system would allow information on possible foreign buyers of
U.S. agricultural goods to be send quickly to American companies, allowing them "same
day" contact with the possible buyers. "The problem is usually getting the buyers
and sellers together, Block said. "It will be much more timely to do it through
this system, and time can be crucial." The AGNET system is an agricultural
information delivery network operated by Nebraska University. It can quickly
distribute agricultural information and has users in 40 states.

Note. Announcements of the dissemination of trade leads via AGNET were contained in
the Export Briefs of March 8 and in Issue No. 11. For further information write
AGNET, 105 Miller Hall, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska 68583-0713.
