The event will promote deliberations and analyses of national and global economic trends to shape 2023. Like its previous edition, the 2023 FirstBank Nigeria Economic Outlook aims to set the tone for the year by providing an opportunity for participants to learn directly from economic experts. Participants will be better informed and knowledgeably empowered to make the right decisions in their socio-economic activities in 2023.
‘Biodun Adedipe, Ph.D, founder and Chief Consultant of B. Adedipe Associates Limited, BAA Consult, will lead the event’s keynote speaker deliberations. Other speakers are FirstBank’s Ini Ebong, Executive Director, Treasury and International Banking; Tosin Adewuyi, Executive Director, Corporate Banking; Ugo “Ugodre” Obi-chukwu, Founder, NairaMetrics as well as Mosope Arubayi, economist and global financial analyst. Chike Uzoma, Head of Strategy & Corporate Development FirstBank, will moderate the event.
According to Mrs. Folake Ani-Mumuney, Group Head, Marketing & Corporate Communications of FirstBank, ‘Our forthcoming Nigeria Economic Outlook webinar is a viable opportunity for one to be informed on key trends and activities that will shape the global socio-economic landscape in 2023. 2022 was indeed a turbulent year; from the 2023 forecast, the growth would still be slow. In addition, bearing in mind 2023 is an election year in Nigeria, like every democratic nation around the world, the forthcoming election will impact commercial and business activities in the country.
I encourage everyone to join the event as the keynote speaker and panellists will shed more light and perspectives, informing participants about opportunities and happenings that will shape the socio-economic and political environment in the country and the world at large.
