The Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF) and the State Ministry of Economic Planning and Budget (MEPB) set to collaborate on hosting the second edition of the Lagos Employment Summit next month.
With the theme, “Sustainable Job Creation Strategies: Collective Action and Prosperity for All”, this year’s edition, which is a hybrid event, will foster deliberations about progressive economic and social solutions to unemployment problems in the state.
Speaking at a press conference to announce the upcoming event, Mrs. Teju Abisoye, Executive Secretary, LSETF, said sustainable job creation strategies are a much-needed conversation among industry players in the entire socio-economic space.
Abisoye said: “This event will spotlight various speakers with diverse wealth of experience across the entrepreneurial, advocacy, governmental and private sectors.
“We share in the philosophy that the issue of unemployment is a shared responsibility of the government, corporates, and individuals; hence, we are always elated to partner and collaborate as much as we can, and this summit further positions us in the right direction.”
In his remark, the Lagos State Commissioner for Economic Development and Planning, Mr. Sam Egube, said; “This summit aligns with the Next Level goals of the Federal Government and the Lagos State Government’s flagship policy thrust, the T.H.E.M.E.S. Agenda on job creation and making Lagos a 21st century economy.”
