The Economist will hold its 11th annual Nigeria Summit on March 7 and March 8 to discuss the business climate in Nigeria.
The event will bring together a wide variety of business and government representatives and experts to discuss the global economy and Nigeria's economic future. It will include speakers, panel discussion, exhibitions, submissions from experts and more.
One of the key topics at the event will be the effect Nigeria's first democratic transfer of power will have on the country's economy. The oil industry will also be an important discussion at the event.
“This year’s Nigeria Summit will bring together over 350 participants drawn from different walks of life including Nigeria’s public and private sectors, international business players and investors for a discussion on how Nigeria can turn its economic growth into social and political prosperity,” Daniel Franklin, executive director of The Economist, said.
Some of the listed speakers for the event include professor Yemi Osinbajo, vice president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria; Alhaji Aliko Dangote, president and CEO of Dangote Group; Danladi Verheijen, CEO and managing director of Verod; Herbert Wigwe, CEO of Access Bank, Nigeria; Okechukwu Enelamah, Nigeria's minister of industry, trade and investment; and Jonathan Rosenthal, Africa editor at The Economist.
