One-day Quarterly Conference on ‘Nigeria’s Economic Outlook’, to hold on 14 December 2017


Tuesday, November 28, 2017 10:12AM / Economic Associates 

Economic Associates (EA) will host a one-day quarterly conference on Nigeria’s Economic Outlook on Thursday, 14 December 2017 at Radisson Blu Hotel & Anchorage, Ozumba Mbadiwe Street, Victoria Island, Lagos. Participants will discuss EA’s Insights on the four sub-themes of the conference with decision makers from a wide variety of sectors, Federal and State ministries, departments and agencies, and diplomatic/donor communities.

The conference will dwell on: 
1.                Global Outlook- What are the best responses by governments at the federal and state levels, as well as corporates, to the lingering twin-gluts on the global scene? Global commodity glut has meant a new regime of shortfalls in government revenue and foreign exchange supply, after more than a decade of windfalls, just as global liquidity glut resulting from liquidity injections by leading central banks are creating fresh options for unlocking liquidity to mitigate shortfalls. 

2.        Domestic Outlook- (i.) What are the likely paths of cyclical variables like money, bonds, equity, foreign reserves, GDP growth, sectoral growth, government revenue, government spending, inflation, interest rates, and exchange rates? (ii.) What are the likely structural shifts in the contributions of supply-side activities like agriculture, industry and services to GDP, and the contributions of demand-side aggregates like consumption, investment and government spending to GDP? (iii.) What are the likely changes in states’ sectoral or fiscal profiles, given growing concerns about the impact of states’ economic and revenue weaknesses for the national outlook.

3.        Policy Outlook- How would the 2018 budgetary pronouncements, monetary policy stance, and the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) shape the outlook? 

4.        Overall Outlook- What’s likely to dominate the outlook: global twin-gluts, cyclical/structural issues, or policies?
