The scale of the current pandemic-driven economic crisis is unprecedented. What does the future hold for businesses, workers, and jobseekers as states move forward with reopening the economy? Can we expect a speedy recovery? The Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness (CREC) and its affiliated associations invite you to participate in a conversation with Tom Barkin, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, one of 12 regional Reserve Banks that are a part of the Federal Reserve System. In addition to its role in the nation’s monetary policy, the Richmond Fed works to strengthen the economy and communities in its district, which includes the Carolinas, Maryland, Virginia, most of West Virginia, and Washington, D.C. During this digital town hall, President Barkin will share his perspectives on the economy and prospects for recovery, followed by an opportunity for participants to ask questions and share assessments about their own regional challenges. This is a great opportunity to both get and share insights on the state of the economy in this pandemic crisis and beyond.
