Promoting Culture and Creativity in Nigeria at the World Economic Forum

Honourable Minister Hannatu Musa Musawa recently represented Nigeria at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. She hosted the Destination 2030 Nigeria Roundtable focused on

"Culture and Creativity as a Catalytic Force for Transformative Impact."

Moderated by TIME's Global Chief Revenue Officer Viktoria Degtar, the roundtable aligned with WEF’s 2023 priorities of fostering inclusive growth and jobs. Minister Musawa addressed the role of African governments in enacting policies to enable innovation and creativity.

As FMACCE Minister, Musawa advocates for Nigeria’s vibrant cultural scene on the global stage. Her participation at Davos highlights how the arts, culture, and creative industries can drive sustainable development. It also showcases Nigeria as an emerging cultural leader shaping the future of arts and creativity in Africa and beyond.

The roundtable was built on the goals of Nigeria's new John Randle Centre to preserve cultural heritage. Nigeria seeks to leverage its diversity and creative capital to transform its society and economy for future generations.
