The National Steering Committee will be anchored by the National Planning Commission (NPC) which shall serve as the Secretariat. It shall also be chaired by the Minister and Deputy Chairman NPC with the Secretary to NPC as its Secretary. The Secretary to the NSC is closely assisted by three Deputy Secretaries. In order to allow for inclusiveness, the private sector is actively involved in the process. In this regard, the Director General of NESG has been engaged to serve as one of the Deputy Secretaries.


The National Steering Committee shall be supported by the National Technical Working Groups (NTWGs). The NTWGV2020 will comprise of about 20-25 groups of experts for the identified thematic areas drawn from both public and private practitioners with responsibility, expertise and passion for the area. They may also be assisted by consultants where necessary to undertake specific studies or research work to provide the data necessary for the working groups report. The National Technical Working Groups shall also work closely with and assist the stakeholder groups in preparing their vision 2020 documents and COPs.


The V2020 would be a bottom-up strategic plan in which each major stakeholder group will prepare its V2020 document based on the guidelines approved by the National Council in line with the national goals and priorities. It is intended to have about 20-25 stakeholder committees. Stakeholders will include State Governments, MDAs and other key institutions.

While the MDAs and other Stakeholder Development Committees are expected to provide information that will feed into the NV2020 Plan, the State Development Committees will generate information that will feed into the State V2020 documents using the Federal Guidelines.


The Economic Management Team will serve as Think-Tank to drive the visioning process. The Chairman and Vice Chairman of the EMT are members of the National Council and National Steering Committee on Vision 2020 as well as provide the vital link and feedback from both directions between the National Council and the National Steering Committee. They will therefore provide the vital link and feedback from both bodies
