The Retail Roundtable presents The Nigeria Retail Outlook 2019 with the theme “Building the Appetite for Sustainable Growth” holding on January 17, 2019 at the Lagos Continental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. The focus is to discuss key issues that will shape the growth and development of your retail business in 2019.
🔴 THE NIGERIA RETAIL OUTLOOK 2019:
Globally, the industry is going through a challenging phase. In Nigeria, the retail landscape is experiencing a transformation that is shaped and driven by changing consumer preferences, heightened competition from nimble new entrants, a rising ecommerce trends, and dynamic socio-political environment. In particular, as the country heads for a general election in 2019 and with political calculations daily shaping the issues in the socio-political space, winning and visionary business owners and leaders cannot afford to stay aloof.
The country is projected to grow though sluggishly from 1.9 per cent it had previously predicted to 2.3% in 2019, but there are clouds in the horizon that may possibly cause the economy to under-perform, according to International Monetary Fund (IMF). Growth is however expected to gain steam going forward thanks to rising oil production following a significant ramp-up in infrastructure investment in recent years and rising oil price. Moreover, softer inflation and improved exchange rate liquidity should buoy domestic demand dynamics in 2019.
However, political uncertainty and downside risks related to the 2019 elections and politics is high, likely putting economic reforms on the backburner and delay the 2019 budget. Governance may in fact go on recess!
These issues clouds the outlook for 2019. However, one thing is certain: whatever the outcome of the 2019 elections, Nigeria will not be the same again.
