GRASONVILLE — What impending challenges and opportunities lie ahead for our economy? Dr. Memo Diriker, founding director of BEACON at Salisbury University, will deliver his expert analysis of the financial climate at the Queen Anne’s County Economic Outlook Symposium 2017 on Tuesday, March 21.
The conference is presented by the Queen Anne’s County Department of Economic Development and the county’s Economic Development Commission.
“Attendees will learn about current business conditions, economic performance and emerging trends that will impact not only our area, but also the state and nation in 2017 and beyond,” said Jean Fabi, acting director of Economic Development.
Diriker’s experience with the Business, Economic and Community Outreach Network offers a local, national and international perspective, while Jim DiDonato, a Queen Anne’s County business leader, will address the local business climate. Discussions continue with the state’s assessment, delivered by Steve Pennington from the Maryland Department of Commerce, who will also give an overview of the Enterprise Zone program.
