The need for your organization to participate in our national productivity intervention training is to aid the country’s national recovery.
Nigeria continues its recovery from the 2016 recession, sustaining an estimated 2 per cent growth rate in 2019. The collapse of global oil prices during 2014–16, combined with lower domestic oil production, led to a sudden slowdown in economic activity. Nigeria’s annual real GDP growth rate, which averaged 7 per cent from 2000 to 2014, fell to 2.7 per cent in 2015 and -1.6 per cent in 2016. Growth rebounded to 0.8 per cent in 2017, 1.9 per cent in 2018, and then plateaued at 2 per cent in the first half of 2019, where it is expected to remain for the rest of the year.
Services, particularly telecoms, remained the main driver of growth in 2019, although trade started contracting amidst increasing use of policy measures aimed at import substitution. Agricultural growth picked up slightly but remains affected by insurgency in the Northeast region and ongoing farmer-herder conflicts. Industrial performance was mixed: growth in the oil sector remained stable, but manufacturing production slowed in the context of weaker power sector supply. Overall, the slow pace of recovery in 2019 is attributable to weak consumer demand and lower public and private investment which has a direct relationship with low productivity.
The CeProd Opportunity for Growth and Enhanced Productivity training intervention focuses on a select organization that can contribute to increasing productivity in Nigeria. It is intended to allow your organization to leverage productivity growth to accelerate Nigeria’s economic expansion and create new job opportunities. This productivity emanates from a better understanding of what they excel at and sharpening the productivity skills necessary to effectively remain on top.
