Lagos Ehingbeti: Taking the spirit of collaboration to the next level



Even across sectors, corporations to increase revenue and customers base will

would reach the level the world has never seen before.


With countries around the world beginning to implement recovery strategies

from the shockwave of Coronavirus, the Lagos Economic Summit Group

(LESG) is poised to chart the path for the sustainable socio-economic

development of Lagos State at the Lagos Economic Summit tagged

‘ Ehingbeti  2020’ scheduled to hold from November 10 – 12, 2020.


This experiential project is themed ‘For a Greater Lagos: Setting The Tone For

The Next Decade’, Ehingbeti 2020 will provide a robust platform for

deliberations on pragmatic optimisation of the inherent opportunities in Africa’s

5th largest economy and offer perspectives on how to manage the peculiar

socio-economic landscape of the State in the coming decade. The three-day

summit, which will be a hybrid of virtual and live events, will draw

participation from various sectors of the economy and across the globe.


With the absence of the economic summit in the past four years, there seemed

to be a decline in the rate of public-private collaboration in Lagos. This year’s

summit is aimed at reconnecting with the private sector, which is the bedrock of

the Lagos Economic Summit. The quest to strengthen the existing relationship

between government and the private sector is one of the major goals of this

summit since greater private sector participation in governance is a prerequisite

for a functional State.


The Group has also refreshed the Ehingbeti logo to reflect the contemporary

outlook of the annual summit without disconnecting from the economic heritage

of the Marina and Broad Streets areas of Lagos, which served as the

springboard for Nigerian and West African economic development since the

European incursion in the 15th century.-
