The Biggest Employers’ Advocacy Platform in Nigeria

About The Summit

The NECA Employers’ Summit, was created as the highest private sector-oriented advocacy platform for deliberation and creation of solution paths for business challenges in the economy. The 2024 edition, which is the third in the series, has the theme, “Economic Renaissance: Harnessing Government Reforms and Private Sector Agility”. The choice of the theme is a product of the need for broad discussion on current Government policy trajectory to ensure that they are business-centric and have the veracity to catalyze national growth and development.

In the last two decades, the Nigerian economy has witnessed very sluggish growth rate with stunted economic development. For instance, the average annual growth rate of the economy from 2013 to 2022 was 2.4%, while average GDP Per Capita remained low at US$2352.01 for the same period. The period was beset with a litany of challenges including fuel and foreign exchange crises, abrasive monetary and fiscal management, etc., which had adverse effects on private businesses in terms of capacity utilization, output, sales and profit as well as employment. The challenges have been existential to organized businesses as most of them were only able to stay afloat by sheer doggedness.
