CSEA hosted the first edition of its Seminar series for 2023 on January 25th. The presentation featured the recent Country Economic Memorandum, Nigeria’s Public Finance Review and Development Update, released by the World Bank in January 2023.
The speakers were Gloria Joseph-Raji (Senior Economist) and Miguel Saldaraigga (Country Economist) from The World Bank. The presentation highlighted a wider comparative perspective of Nigeria’s growth since 2001, a prioritized set of reforms for the short and medium term, and fiscal adjustment measures for better sustainable development.
To address key challenges facing the nation, the presenters, in tandem with the reports, recommended three priorities, including spending better, increasing revenue and strengthening institutions.
