Manufacturing & Mining
The Manufacturing & Mining Policy Commission (MMPC) acts as a public-private policy dialogue platform for the manufacturing and mining sectors with a view to fast-tracking manufacturing and mining growth of the economy, drive advocacy that focuses on specific issues with a view to ensuring the formulation, adoption, implementation of appropriate policies and champion the recommendations made at Nigerian Economic Summit (DESG) to spark the intended sectoral growth and development needed in the economy. To achieve this, members of the Policy Commission meet regularly as action-oriented partnerships to deliberate on ways to remove the bottlenecks in the sector.
Most people think about the stock market when talking about financial markets. They don’t realize there are many kinds that accomplish different goals. Markets exchange a variety of products to help raise liquidity. Financial markets create an open and regulated system for companies to acquire large amounts of capital. This is done through the stock and bond markets. Markets also allow these businesses to offset risk. They do this with commodities, foreign exchange futures contracts, and other derivatives. Since the markets are public, they provide an open and transparent way to set prices on everything traded. They reflect all available knowledge about everything traded. This reduces the cost of obtaining information because it’s already incorporated into the price.
The world as we know it is continually changing, and one of the fundamental drivers is digital transformation. At its core, digital transformation isn’t about Internet “unicorns.” It’s about using the latest technology to do what you already do – but better. The digital economy is the economic activity that results from billions of everyday online connections among people, businesses, devices, data, and processes. The backbone of the digital economy is hyperconnectivity which means growing interconnectedness of people, organisations, and machines that results from the Internet, mobile technology and the internet of things (IoT). The digital economy is taking shape and undermining conventional notions about how businesses are structured; how firms interact; and how consumers obtain services, information, and goods.
Agriculture & Food Security
The Agriculture and Food Security Policy Commission engages in advocacy to follow through agriculture specific issues with a view to ensuring the formulation, adoption, and implementation of appropriate policies on agro-industrial development in the agro industrial space and food and nutrition security as a whole. The overarching objective of the Agriculture & Food Security Policy Commissions is to facilitate the adoption of various DESG recommendations with a view to fast-tracking growth and development of the economy. It is therefore against this background that DESG is working with select players in the Agricultural sector with the view to contribute meaningfully to the body of actionable solutions which the public and private sector is encouraged to adopt towards weathering the current economic and environmental downturns.
