Forecast NE | Focus Maine Economic conditions in Maine and the region


THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2018 | PORTLAND MARRIOTT, SOUTH PORTLAND

PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE MBTA’S 2018 CUMBERLAND MEETING. Our guest speaker will be from the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and will discuss the economic outlook for Maine, the region and the industry. The region saw strong gains in several sectors during 2017, including construction employment, which out-performed all other sectors during Q4. Economists have forecast a strong 2018 for the economy and for construction. Still, questions remain: Will recent tax cuts enacted by Congress overheat the economy? And what effect does volatility in the stock market play in the outlook?

AS PART OF THE CENTRAL BANK OF THE UNITED STATES, , the Boston Fed works to promote sound growth and financial stability in New England and the nation by conducting economic research, participating in monetary policy-making, supervising certain financial institutions, providing financial services and payments, playing a leadership role in the payments industry, and supporting economic well-being in communities.

JOIN THE MBTA FOR AN INFORMATIVE EVENING, and enjoy networking with friends, colleagues and community leaders in the transportation field.
