The prospects for 2017 is centered around “Choice” and response to growth drivers factors. Choice; It is all about the choices made, poor policy choices lead to poor growth of the economy. African leaders are making the wrong policy choices and as a result, Africa is not growing- Prof Pat Utomi.
Culture(Leadership), human capital, institutions, entrepreneurship and policy choices make up the growth driver framework.

The host speaker Udo Okonjo, CEO Fine and Country, also shared some valuable insights for 2017. Below are her views;
Housing is one of the most basic human need, corruption is arguably fuelled by lack of housing. “With Real Estate sector in 2017, l see some bright lights, there are pockets of opportunities
but with pockets of opportunities you have to be creative, innovative and note the real demand” -Udo Okonjo.

Some of the other pockets of opportunities Mrs. Okonjo explored focused on the “The Real Market” which is the middle market, millennial market( housing), emerging market, migrant market and community retail. She noted the increase in growth and increase in demand for residential and commercial properties.
