The Federal Government has been advised to review its economic policies to accommodate evolving global economic trends in order to facilitate quick recovery and growth. Economic experts and stakeholders said this in Lagos at the 2017 Bankers Nite organised by the Lagos branch of the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria. The theme of the annual event was, “The new world economic order: Imperative of a national policy rethink.
” They reasoned that political developments in the United Kingdom and the policy of protectionism gaining momentum in developed countries, especially the United States, would have far-reaching effects on Nigeria’s economy. The stakeholders said Nigeria’s economy must be well positioned for the emerging new world economic order. The Chief Executive Officer, Nextnomics, Dr. Temitope Oshikoya, who was the guest speaker at the event, noted that irrespective of global economic development, globalisation would continue to exist.
