Webinar: Utah’s national economic leadership – reporter’s roundtable

The Salt Lake Chamber will host a webinar with reporters and policy watchers to discuss how Utah attained and can remain the best state for growth and economic opportunity. This roundtable webinar will discuss how Utah attained such national recognition coming out of a pandemic. Recent reports from The Milken Institute, the Wall Street Journal, US News & World Report and others have highlighted the state’s economic strength. The reporters covering Utah’s business community and economic development will share what they are seeing from the front lines.

This virtual panel will discuss insights they have into where gravity is shifting on the business and development front. What progress businesses are making? What factors are contributing to Utah’s economic success, even coming out from the pandemic? What lessons can be gleaned from business during the pandemic? What’s ahead for the State? And what challenges still need to be overcome to assure Utah remains in its preeminent position?

Business leaders are encouraged to attend and learn what these experts see now, what’s coming, and ways to promote and sustain economic opportunities for individuals and families.
