Given the first half of the year’s market volatility, plus a pending mid-term election, 2018 year will definitely be a year to remember for US companies and the economy.  Come January, however, will your boardroom be positioned for the past or the future?  MITA’s Annual Economic Forecast Summit right after the first of the year will provide a glimpse into what may lie ahead for the US and global economy.  As has become tradition, the MITA Board of Directors has once again lined up two global experts for this annual summit.

Our first keynote speaker, Mr. Ron Feldman, is the First Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.  In this role, Mr. Feldman is responsible for all operational facets of the Bank’s activities and for backup to the President in the execution of his monetary policy responsibilities., Mr. Feldman will give his 2019 perspective of the US economy and growth opportunities.

Following Mr. Feldman’s address, we have Dr. Walter Kemmsies, as our second keynote.  Dr. Kemmsies is the Managing Director, Economist and Chief Strategist at JLLand is widely viewed as one of the foremost experts on ports, rail and infrastructure in the U.S.  Dr. Kemmsies will present his perspective on demand forecasting, maritime and overall global trade regulatory issues, public/private port and infrastructure financing as well as long term strategic planning/capital investment.
