Nigerian Economic Summit (NES) 25th Anniversary Essay Competition 2019

Application Deadline : July 24, 2019

O Grupo de Cúpula Econômica da Nigéria (NESG) in partnership with the National Universities Commission (NUC) is pleased to announce the theme for the Nigerian Economic Summit (NES) 25th Anniversary Essay Competition

Enhancing Confidence in Nigeria for Nation Building: Towards Economic Success and Improved Quality of life for Nigerians

Trust is the social glue that holds families, communities, organizations and societies together; without it, reaching any agreement can become a fraught negotiation.” – Peggy (Rockefeller) Dulany,Synergos1

Com uma mudança global em direção ao crescimento econômico “inclusivo”, argumenta-se que a prosperidade econômica e o sucesso dos negócios não podem ser adequadamente explicados pela abundância de recursos naturais, o brilho do intelecto ou a presença de boas leis e instituições. Pelo contrário, a prosperidade econômica requer (além dos elementos acima listados) uma cultura de confiança e capital social que forma uma contribuição econômica (Fukuyama, 1995).

According to Fukuyama, studies have shown that there is a direct correlation between the level of trust of a country and her economic expansion or success. The higher the collective trust level of a nation, the higher the level of collaboration and her chances at inclusive economic development.

In the light of the challenges that have constantly plagued the Nigerian economy such as high levels of corruption and rent seeking, insecurity and insurgency, poor and deteriorating human capital indices, slow and non-inclusive economic growth, slow diversification of the economy, year-on-year budget deficits, economic regression of sub-nationals amongst others, Nigeria has remained a low-trust country and this has resulted in a slow-paced growth.

With an outlook of building a nation that is competitive and sustainable, Nigeria sets to embark on the long march towards economic growth and improved quality of life for its people. Bearing in mind the highly diverse nature of Nigeria, we cannot therefore shy away from the arduous task of rebuilding trust and confidence in her people.

It is on this premise that the NESG calls for applicants for the essay competition.
