Economic Associates (EA) will host a one-day conference on Nigeria's Economic Outlook in 2016.
One year into the life of the newly-elected regime of President Muhammadu Buhari, the good news about Nigeria is that the thick cloud of uncertainty that beclouded any effort to assess the outlook of the economy throughout last year has cleared up. Electoral and transitional uncertainty had dominated the first half of the year, while economic policy uncertainty had dominated the second half.
In the first half of 2016, enough has been said by the government to clarify the broad economic policy directions, but daily news about Nigeria's economic interface with the global economy has come to be dominated by:
- Wild swings in commodity prices and capital flows
- Volatilities in economic growth, inflation, interest rates, external reserves, and exchange rate
- What more the government could do to stabilize the volatilities in the face of those swings.
The conference will provide participants with valuable opportunities to sum up notable developments in all the above issues in the first half of this year, and clarify the outlook for the second half and beyond.
CEOs, EDs, Senior Government Officials, Analysts and Diplomat.
