The Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) and the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget, and National Planning are pleased to announce that the rescheduled 26th Nigerian Economic Summit (#NES26) will now hold between November 23rd and 24th 2020. The Summit with the theme "Building Partnerships for Resilience", will convene national and global policymakers, business leaders, development partners, and scholars to lead and participate in sessions that will focus on strategic partnerships between the youth, governments, private sector, and the civil society to build resilience for Nigeria's households, businesses and economy.
A joint statement from the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) and the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning, notes that the Summit will provide all participants with a robust engagement platform as it will be an opportunity to deliberate on topical issues especially related to recent developments; and in particular the need to amplify the voice of our youth and the issues they have raised in the past few weeks.
Discussions at #NES26 will be anchored on three pillars - Collaboration, Execution, and Impact that will be dimensioned across five sub-themes: Mapping the Future; New Trends, New Opportunities, New Horizons; Embracing Technology and Innovation; Building Resilience and Charting the Path to Recovery.
The 26th Nigerian Economic Summit is expected to be a 'Big Conversation for Action' that combines in-person and virtual dialogue for stakeholders across civil societies, diverse public and private sector actors, and other stakeholders who would deliberate on the state of the Nigerian economy and the need to rethink the country's economic fundamentals.
