PROVIDENCE – The PBN Economic Trends Summit will be held on Feb. 10 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The virtual summit will discuss the trends affecting the R.I. economy and challenges they present, including inflation, supply chain, labor shortages and the omicron variant. Discussions will include: What lies ahead for the economic recovery in the state for 2022? And where are there opportunities?

In terms of rising inflation, how will interest rates be impacted? Can and will consumer spending keep up with rising prices?

How will business move forward safely? How well is the state using federal pandemic aid to help challenged businesses? And what’s the likelihood of success for the federal Build Back Better plan – and what it could mean to state and area businesses.
