Chapter One


1.1 Background of the Study

The A brief look at Nigeria today one can find out that we like fashion and everything new in Nigeria, the spirit that greeted the issue of globalization at its climax in 2000 seemed to have reduced.

The word globalization also seems to have gone the internet, computerization and cyber café. Globalization as an economic concept has been viewed at differently by different academic scholars, to represent so many things. However, globalization has been defined by John Vogi (Vanguard 2003) to mean a word that is liberalized of barriers to trade and invest where cooperation can produce and sell almost any service and can produce anywhere.

Globalization also in recent times involves trillions of dollars of investment. Globalization whether for or against remains a subject on which there has been comprehensive and unyielding misunderstanding especially concerning the constraints that it does not place on the power of government.

Moreover, since globalization also means the growing inter-dependence and inter-connectedness of the modern world, it boosts the economic development.

Furthermore, any nation or country globalization sets in the economy of that nation starts waxing strong. According to Ajodele (1995), the increase of movements of good, services, capita and information access, national borders is rapidly creating a single global economy.

The process is drawn by technological advance and reduction in the cost of international transactions, raise the share of trade in the world of production and increase the mobility of capital. According to Jack show, British Foreign secretary in a write up the international Guardian of September 10, 2011, he said attempts to manage change in global levels are in their infancy. To him global market, global, world wide access to each other and information both give us a sense of belonging.

Steward (1990) noted that the impact of globalization on poor people varies widely both between countries and within them, depending on initial circumstance and on the policies that government pursue. For instance in China poor people living in coastal province have benefited more from increased export and investment than those in land provinces.

Globalization however has continued to angender enormous debate controversy, protest and demonstrations that are some times violent in nature.

The reaction to the concept of globalization and its application to human development have been significantly more pronounced in the relationship between the developed western world which are owners of the new technologies and the poor developing countries which are by and large consumers of the new capitalist economy. Nigeria is in the global village hence is an importer of goods and services.

1.2 Statement of the Problem

Globalization brings some systematic risk for example, the damaging effect of financial vitality were vividly illustrated in the Asian crises of 1997. Greater access to the global pool as saving through capital markets offers developing countries, the levels that can be supported from domestic savings alone, but the Asian experience indicate clearly that openness to start term portfolio flows can be damaging in the observe of sound macroeconomic position adequate domestic regulating and transparency in relationship between companies and banks.

One of the major reasons for creating the ministry of information and communication in Enugu state in particular is to bring about economic development in state. This noble objective or aim is not fully authorized because of the short comings of the ministry sequel to the fact that the use of human resource is not fully harnesses and lack of modern technological and information gadget is not in the ministry of communicate globalization properly to the people. The recent happenings from the developed, countries poor knowledge of information flow to the people from the ministry and lack of implementation of government policies to infrastructural development is one of the challenges of the ministry of information is fast becoming the basis of development and its absence or insufficient flow may in turn becomes a new dimension of poverty.

Summary, Conclusion and Recommendation

In this chapter, certain recommendations made which in the opinion of the researcher will be of benefits in addressing the challenges associated with globalization and economic development in Nigeria.

5.2 Summary

This study is of the view that increased trade and capital flows engendered by globalization can enhance the country’s growth performance. However, if Nigeria is to benefit from the global integration, it has to address a number of challenges and implement appropriate strategies and policies in order to maximize the benefits of globalization and minimize the risks of destabilization and marginalization, as well as promote rapid economic growth and achieve substantial poverty reduction. Nigeria can achieve this hope by the promotion of manufactured exports, regional integration, human capital development, promotion of foreign direct investment flow, raising the level of domestic savings and investment, development of technology and infrastructures.

5.4 Recommendation

Based on the findings, the following recommendations were made

  1. Government should provide all basic infrastructural facilities, in order to empower manufacturing firms to operate effectively and efficiently at the global level
  2. Manufacturing industries should drastically improve their product quality, through the adoption of modern technology so that they can compete favorably with the international marketing.
  3. Government should not allow all products to be imported into our nation because some of the imported products are of high quality and standardized if allowed the infant’s industries would not see the light of the day
    The government should provide subsidization to infant industries through the removal of import duties and taxes that are imposed on the small and medium scale this will go a long way to empower and equip them to compete at global market favorably.
  4. Nigeria government should consistently introduce further deregulations or reform measures aimed at eliminating an anti-trade bias through reductions in import protection removals of export restriction and increases in domestic competition
