It is expected to be declared open by the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo.
The theme of the Summit is expected to elicit and adopt a solutions-based approach in addressing the issues that will create opportunities, tackle unemployment and improve productivity.
To deepen the conversation, NESG 20017 has five sub-summit thematic pillars anchored on ensuring a Nigerian content in the nation’s  economy in “Think Nigeria” Skills, Competencies & Capacity.
Another sub-theme is access to Capital, Legislations, Economic inclusion which the nation’s national competitive advantage is created and sustained through a highly localized process.
The summit will be exploring linkages between economic opportunities, productivity, skills and competencies and the right policy pipelines that will deliver them.
Again, strategic investment options, frameworks, models and business cases for unlocking the type of capital flows that creates opportunities and jobs for Nigerians will be x-rayed. The 23rd NESG will also ascertain the progress made in sector opportunities since the last summit and benchmark them on these thematic pillars for further government intervention and private sector investment.
