The Centre for the Study of the Economies of Africa (CSEA) is a non-proﬁt think tank that conducts independent, high quality applied research on economic policy issues in Nigeria and the rest of Africa. CSEA was established in 2008 by Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former Managing Director, World Bank, and currently Nigeria’s Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Honourable Minister of Finance.
CSEA’s Executive Director, Dr. Ebere Uneze, joined other researchers and policymakers at the 16th Senior Policy Seminar organised by the African Economic Research Consortium (AERC) in collaboration with the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from April 9 -10, 2014.
CSEA’s Executive Director, Dr. Ebere Uneze joined other researchers at a workshop organised by the Economic Policy Forum (EPF) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from March 12 to March 14, 2014. The EPF is a network of think tanks and research institutions from emerging economies and Europe with special focus on socio-economic challenges facing their countries as well as the global economic stability.
The attainment of Nigeria’s development aspirations depend largely on the appropriateness of the economic decisions made today. Given its mono-cultural nature, the sustainability of the Nigerian economy can only be guaranteed by successful economic diversification efforts.
