The 22nd Edition of Nigerian Economic Summit Officially Opens with the theme ‘Made-in-Nigeria’




The Nigerian Economic Summit Group has called for concerted and all round effort from relevant stakeholders, for the Nation’s goal of self-sufficiency to be realized.

The Chairman, Nigeria Economic Summit Group (NESG) Board Committee, Adedoyin Salami, made the call on Monday in Abuja at the opening of the 22nd edition of the Nigeria Economic Summit (NES 22).

“If Made-in-Nigeria must succeed, it should not be the challenge of the federal government alone. All the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital territory (FCT) must have a role to play,”

President Muhammadu Buhari who declared the summit open called on participants to ensure that they reach conclusions and come up with resolutions that will support government’s effort to diversify the economy in the face of challenges posed by dwindling global oil prices.

“Made in Nigeria lies at the heart of so many efforts we are making to lead us through this troubled times and lay a firm foundation for the future,” President Buhari said.

The theme for this year’s summit is ‘Made In Nigeria’ with organisers and participants looking to come up with strategies that will spur economic growth through heightened patronage of made in Nigeria goods and services.

Day two of the summit continues with parallel sessions on the ICT, Small and Medium Enterprises, Micro Credit, services and finance.
