Event Topic:

Despite announcements to the effect that the recession ended months ago, few have seen a tangible uptick in the economy. While specific segments may be faring slightly better, the general outlook remains guarded.

The meeting will have three focal points. It will begin with a discussion of the economic outlook for the tri-state area, followed by a forecast of New York City's business climate. Thirdly, since the economic engine of the region and country has always been small business, we will look into the operating environment for firms in this sector and discuss resources available to them.

The speakers will discuss options available to federal, state and city governments to ease current economic pressures. Further, the Small Business Development Center will provide advice to small business owners regarding steps they can take to enhance the strength of their firms.
