2019 is another pivotal moment in the history of Nigeria. Nigerians will march to the polls in February to elect a leader that will usher them into the third decade of the century. It will mark 20 years since the return to democratic rule in 1999.


So far, we have seen that the major political parties have focused on mud-slinging rather than the critical problems and challenges facing the country, including widespread poverty and unemployment, weak governance structure, corruption, needed economic and structural reforms, and growing security and inequality challenges.


We want to be different. Please join us at the Nigeria Economic Outlook Conference (NEOC) 2019 from 15 – 16 January 2019 at the Grand Ball Room of the Eko Hotels + Suites, Lagos

The Theme - Reforms, Investments, and Jobs


It is motivated by the need to start and elevate discussions on critical reforms required in different areas of the Nigerian economy that will drive investments, growth and jobs. As an agenda-setting platform, NEOC 2019 promises to offer fresh ideas and perspectives from world-class business and policy thought leaders on important issues.


The agenda is thus designed with the purpose of demystifying the prevalent aversion for wholesale changes to the way and the environment in which businesses operate and invest in Nigeria. In this context, key discussions will include the following:


  • Nigeria’s economy reset – policies, reforms, and growth
  • Nigeria’s growing debt burden – implications for growth, investment, and government fiscal constraints
  • Nigeria’s today business environment – nexus between public policies + business growth and profitability, access to capital issues, poor human capital + collapse in demand
  • Nigeria’s growth and inequality – making Nigeria’s economy work for all
  • AfCTA Nigeria and Africa’s Population growth, demographics, migration and the rise of populism in the West
  • Stalled Oil and gas reforms – political or economic suicide or both?
  • Nigeria and Africa’s economic integration – Trade, Migration, and Tourism
  • Stagnating growth in financial inclusion - what should be Nigeria’s strategy?
  • Poverty to Wealth – Expanded State or Extensive Private enterprise?
  • Security, Enterprise and Growth – Navigating Nigeria’s investment landscape amidst growing insecurity
  • The Future of Work – Higher Education, Technology, job Shifts, Innovation + Productivity


Since the last conference in January 2018, Nigeria has been confirmed as the capital of global poverty, now with the largest number of people living in extreme poverty; rising and dangerous levels of unemployment, and a disappearing middle class, increasingly and worryingly due to migration and diminishing income. What do we need to change, how do we change it, and what would the outcome be?
