ABSTRACT


          This study is meant to investigate the impact of globalization on economic growth, also the influence of globalization on the Nigerian economy. It is obvious that Nigeria as a country still depends on the importation of productive inputs despite all efforts to develop her local resources. Thus, the objective of this study is to determine the impact of globalization on Nigeria economic and industrial growth. The study reveals that for Nigeria to benefit from globalization her productive capacity, economic structure, political stability, macroeconomic policy and technology should be enhanced. Since we found out that trade openness has a negative impact on industrial growth.


          Therefore, it should be handled with caution, policies should be directed to decrease trade openness, especially where Nigeria has a comparative advantage due to the fact that we have abundant labour, we should promote labour intensive method of production and export commodities to earn foreign currency for use in other sector.


          . The research therefore reviewed the concepts of globalization; it problem and benefit as well as its impact on Nigeria industrial development and the impact of globalization on the world economy are critically examined. Based on determining implication of globalization on economic development, recommendations on the development of Nigerian economy to keep pace with globalization are highlighted.
