Columbus Chamber Government Spotlight: COVID-19 Economic Impact Review
April 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The Columbus Chamber of Commerce Government Spotlight series features timely discussions with key leaders and elected officials. These events seek to connect businesses with policymakers and regulators at all levels of government in an intimate setting, offering members the opportunity to speak candidly about issues impacting their operations, strengthen relationships with partners in the public sector, and elevate the collective voice of the Columbus region business community.
COVID-19 has caused a negative economic impact in our region locally, throughout the state of Ohio and as a nation at large. The Trump Administration and the DeWine-Husted Administration have both taken swift and bold actions to mitigate the potential effects of COVID-19 for the health and safety of our communities. However, some of those actions have disadvantaged our businesses.
The Columbus Chamber is hosting a virtual discussion on April 16 with U.S. Chamber Senior Economist Curtis Dubay, who will help break down the projected short and long-term impacts of COVID-19 on our economy, including our global and local supply chains. Dubay has regularly appeared on national media like Fox News, MSNBC, CNN and C-SPAN. Dubay has testified before Congress several times and cited in publications like The New York Times and Politico.
