Ehingbeti 2021: Notable business leaders top lists of speakers, as 8th Edition Of Summit Opens Tuesday

The Lagos Economic Summit, also called Ehingbeti will play host to Notable business leaders and political figures across the globe who will be joining the private sector in setting agenda for Lagos State towards the next decade.

This was disclosed on Sunday in a statement released by the organisers, titled ‘Catriona Laing, Mo Ibrahim, Adesina, Okonjo-Iweala to speak at Ehingbeti’.

The statement said the summit was living-up to its reputation as Africa’s most practical and result-oriented private sector-led forum for socio-economic and infrastructural development, with the quality of speakers confirmed to mount the podium at the sessions.

With the theme ‘For a greater Lagos: Setting the tone for the next decade’, Ehingbeti 2021 draws about 150 speakers from across the world to discuss and deliberate on pragmatic optimisation of the inherent opportunities in Africa’s 5th largest economy.

The statement reveals the Summit will also offer perspectives on how to manage the peculiar socio-economic landscape of Lagos State in the coming decade.

The statement said Ehingbeti is an ingenuous socio-economic apparatus that had contributed significantly to the evolution of Lagos State into a major economy in sub-Saharan Africa and an admirable megacity, with expanding potentials.

It stated that as a public-private sector roundtable that started as a collaborative effort between Lagos State Government and Business Club Ikeja, Ehingbeti had been hosted by successive governments in Lagos State since the beginning of the 4th republic.

The Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget and Co-Chair of Ehingbeti, Sam Egube, said, “Our realities from 2000 when the first Ehingbeti held, exactly 20 years ago, have significantly changed”.
