A Private-Public Sector Dialogue on Connectivity & Productivity in Lagos by BusinessDay in partnership with Danne Institute for Research
As the hotspot of the COVID-19 in Nigeria, Lagos risks losing its advantage: the concentration of economic activities, especially consumption – households in Lagos spent N5trn in 2019, 12.60 percent of total household expenditure, according to the National Bureau of Statistics.
Experts, however, argue that the economic value of cities will remain, even after the pandemic. The advantage of interaction, physical proximity and the exchange of ideas that cities offer are unparalleled.
Will Lagos maintain its pole position as the premier destination for capital and talent after COVID-19? To do that, it must build a more connected, productive, and resilient city post pandemic. An efficient transport infrastructure system enables a city to connect the people and businesses concentrated within it.
Our research on Productivity and Connectivity in Lagos will catalyse the discussion between speakers from Lagos state government and the private sector expected at the event.
Further details to be announced.
