The Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) was incorporated in 1996, as an independent, non-partisan, not-for-profit organisation.
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 NESG was established and incorporated as a non profit, non partisan private sector organization 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, it has emerged as the most important platform for public-private dialogue in Nigeria. During this period, the organization has accomplished a great deal in terms of research outputs and implementation 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. In addition, the organization has established an excellent working relationship with the Government of Nigeria, public sector, private sector and other stakeholders. The flagship of the group’s advocacy efforts has been the annual Nigerian Economic Summit (NES), which provides Government and private sector an opportunity to review the progress made in their economic reform effort and agree practical ways to manage issues which may have constrained effective policy implementation.
