The president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will take part in a virtual event this week exploring the state of the U.S. economy, monetary policy and the North Jersey region’s economic outlook.
Hosted by New Jersey City University’s Guarini Institute for International Education and Economic Mobility, John Williams, who is also vice chair of the Federal Open Market Committee, will deliver a speech and take part in a moderated discussion with NJCU School of Business Founding Dean Bernard McSherry on Feb. 18.
According to the Guarini Institute, the free event is the final in Williams’ virtual regional visit in the area.
“President Williams has demonstrated throughout his career his commitment to making the economy stronger for all and continues to address key challenges in economic mobility,” Guarini Institute at NJCU Executive Director Adrian Franco said in a statement. “The Federal Reserve’s unique role convening education and workforce development leaders has opened the door to innovations like the ones the Guarini Institute at NJCU is launching to engage students with local and global businesses.”
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York works within the Federal Reserve System, and with public and private institutions, to implement monetary policy, deliver financial services, supervise financial institutions and provide thought leadership on national and local issues.
The Guarini Institute for International Education and Economic Mobility launched last October in Jersey City. Before the end of 2021, the center forged a partnership with both the Consulate General of Mexico and the Port of Ashdod in Tel Aviv.
