Despite signs of an economic recovery, many companies are still uncertain about the future of overseas markets. Which markets offer stability? Which markets offer growth and opportunity? Which markets aren’t worth the risk? What is the impact of the weakened dollar on trade and the dollar’s forecast for the future? Get answers to these questions and many more from one of the area’s leading economists.

Global Economic Challenges: Preparing Your Business for Opportunity in a Changing World Environment
(4:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.)

The global economy hangs in a delicate balance. Every day, events such as war, political turmoil, terrorism, military operations and other factors threaten to disrupt that balance. How do firms operating in a volatile global environment prepare themselves for risk and opportunity? This seminar will feature a keynote address on “Top Risks to the Global Economy” and include panelists discussing legal, financial and security issues companies must effectively manage to succeed in today’s dynamic global marketplace.
