NESG urges FG to mobilise finance in high growth sectors 



The Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) urged the FG to mobilise financing in high-growth sectors that are critical towards achieving sustainable development in Nigeria. 

This was disclosed by Dr Olusegun Omisakin, Director of Research, NESG, in a statement in Abuja, ahead of its 29th economic summit (NES 29), scheduled for Oct. 23 -24. 

The NESG Director noted that Nigeria should leverage a compelling portfolio of competitive investment-grade projects and social investment programmes to access and deploy financial resources in support of sustainable development initiatives, adding: 

He added that the NES 29, which is themed: ” Pathways for sustainable economic transformation and inclusion,” is in view of the urgency of translating economic growth into improved and sustainable living standards for all citizens, citing that it would focus on Nigeria’s potential for sustainable development, leveraging innovative policies, robust institutions, strategic infrastructural investments, and human capital development. 

ThePressNG reported earlier that NESG revealed that its 29th summit, NES 29, will revolve around the topic of ‘Pathways for Sustainable Economic Transformation and Inclusion.’ 

The group made it clear that this is necessary, especially considering the urgency to turn the nation’s economic growth into enduring and improved living standards for all citizens.
