In 1993, a group of passionate and concerned private sector leaders
representing key economic sectors conceived the Nigerian Economic
Summit (NES) and sustained it as a platform for bringing together private
sector leaders and senior public sector officials to discuss and dialogue on
the future of the Nigerian Economy.
Three years later, in 1996, the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) was established and incorporated as a non-profit, non-partisan private sector organisation with a mandate to promote and champion the reform of the Nigerian economy into an open, private sector-led globally competitive economy.
Over the years, NESG has achieved significant progress in the areas of research outputs, execution of programmes, seminars, conferences and workshops aimed at facilitating the formulation and implementation of social and economic reform programmes for the growth and transformation of the Nigerian economy. NESG has emerged as the most notable platform for public-private dialogue in Nigeria. During this period, the Group has established an excellent working relationship with the Government of Nigeria, the public sector, private sector, and other stakeholders.
The flagship of the Group’s advocacy efforts is the annual Nigerian Economic Summit (NES), which provides government and private sector an opportunity to review the progress made in our economic reform effort and agree on practical ways to manage issues which may have constrained effective policy implementation.
The membership of the NESG is divided into two major categories, The Corporate Elite and Corporate Enhanced.
As an institution that thrives on research based advocacy, it is expedient that we provide periodic reports on the state of the Nation
Our mandate - "To promote and champion the reform of the Nigerian economy into an open, globally competitive economy."
