The Bureau of Business & Economic Research (BBER) at the University of Montana is about to kick off its 45th annual Economic Outlook Seminar series.
The half-day seminar highlights the latest economic trends for local economies and the state of Montana.
“It’s time to take a step back and think about where economic growth is heading across the state,” said BBER director Patrick Barkey in a news release.
Every year, industry experts give their outlooks for Montana’s important sectors, including health care, forestry, travel and tourism, real estate, manufacturing and agriculture. This year, the seminar also will include the outlook for high-tech and start-up industries.
The theme of the 2020 seminar tour is “Finding Good Workers: New Challenges, New Solutions.”
