CSEA participates at the Economic Policy Directorate Retreat 2021

Dr. Chukwuka Onyekwena joined other stakeholders for the 2021 Economic Policy Directorate Retreat organised by the Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN) in Abuja, from December 2-3, 2021.

The meeting provided a platform for experts to deliberate on the effects of the COVID-19 on the economy and how digital technology has helped under the theme ‘Economic Policy Making Amidst an Uncertain and Digital World: Challenges and Opportunities for Nigeria’.

Dr. Onyekwena’s presentation titled  ‘Balancing a Digitally Enabled Work Environment and Economic Policy Process in Nigeria in an Era of Pandemic’ , notes that the while the pandemic has intensified the pace of adoption of digital tools at the workplace, the traditional mode of work is less likely to return fully. There is also a need for effective management of this development as it would help strengthen policy formulation.
