QUARTERLY BUSINESS ANALYSIS LUNCHEON SET FOR FAYETTEVILLE

The Center for Business and Economic Research in the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas will present the regular Quarterly Business Analysis at a luncheon event. The event is at 11:30 a.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn Fayetteville, 1325 North Palak Drive on May 23, 2017.

Mervin Jebaraj, interim director, of the Center for Business and Economic Research, will address regional economic trends and issues. "I am looking forward to presenting the latest economic information about the Arkansas and Northwest Arkansas economies to our community leaders," Jebaraj said. "The program will highlight new economic data on GDP growth, unemployment rates, personal income, and population estimates and dive deeper into the underlying trends that will affect the economic expansion in the state and region over the near term." The presentation will also focus on new data available about the contributions of arts and culture to the Arkansas economy.

The Quarterly Business Analysis program builds networks of leaders from business, academic and governmental sectors in the region while addressing business highlights of the previous quarter, key economic trends and projections and immediate and long-term issues facing the regional and state economy. Attendees will be able to network with other Northwest Arkansas community leaders before the presentation begins at noon. The program lasts for approximately 60 minutes, including time for questions and answers.
