Budget, Real sector, Nigerian Economy


The real sector of the economy is composed of such sub-sectors as agriculture, manufacturing, mining (solid minerals), crude oil and gas. Given this composition, it is no gainsaying that the real sector of the Nigerian economy constitutes the main driving force of the country, such that no sustainable development can be achieved without a well-developed and viable real sector. This paper examines the Nigerian real sector. It looks at the features which constitute some threats to the success of policies on the real sector. It makes a review of the real sector policies in the 2004 budget and It focusses on the prospects of the real sector in 2004.
