The Program

The 2023 economic outlook is perhaps the most complex and challenging exercise in economic forecasting in decades. Economic indicators are in conflict. Inflation has increased to levels not seen in years but appears to be decreasing. Output may be slowing and there are questions of a recession looming. At the same time, employment numbers continue to improve and the unemployment level is at a record low. The conflict in Ukraine is affecting food supplies and prices globally.

Join us at this year’s luncheon, where top national and regional experts will present their economic forecasts, and advice on these issues and more.
