Bloomberg-NSE CEO Roundtable to focus on innovation in recession

CEO Roundtable

The 2017 edition of the NSE Bloomberg CEO Roundtable will be looking at the how innovation can play a big part to end Nigeria’s recession.

According to the organisers, the event will bring together reputable economists, top government officials and CEOs spanning the Manufacturing, Financial Services, Telecommunications, Agricultural, Investment and Educational sectors.

The bane of Nigeria’s exposure to global economic headwinds is the resource dependent nature of its economy, which has seen the country derive its major income from the sale of its unrefined resources (majorly oil, minerals and cash crops) without building value across the supply chain to yield better earnings. The recent recession has shown that Nigeria’s dependence on natural resources without building value along the supply chain creates little or no buffers for the nation to withstand global economic downturns.

The 2017 edition of the NSE/Bloomberg CEO Roundtable will address this topical issue of resource dependency and the alignment of the economic recovery plan and roadmap to insulate the Nigerian economy from the shocks that come with resource dependency.
