The conference, our correspondent gathered, is a combination of presentations and interactive sessions.

The theme of this year’s event is ‘An economy at a crossroads: thriving in the face of new realities.’
Through the conference, FBN Capital aims to contribute meaningfully to the discourse on how to return the Nigerian economy to growth, temper inflation, boost job creation, and increase awareness on how the government was responding to on-going fiscal and monetary challenges.
The programme will provide an avenue for investors to interact with leaders of the economy, key policy makers in government and senior executives of leading corporate institutions.

“We will discuss the subject of fiscal stimulus and an expansionary posture; Nigeria’s stance on attracting foreign investment, and explore the workings of the liberalized FX markets. We will also examine some identified success stories in this challenging environment.”
