NEW YORK — On Friday, March 31, Federal Reserve Bank of New York President John C. Williams will travel to Fairfield County, Connecticut, to meet with leaders in government, business, education, and community development.
The first engagement on this daylong regional visit will be in Stamford, where President Williams will meet with elected officials from across Fairfield County to learn about their economic plans and other initiatives. He will then head to Norwalk to meet with business leaders for a discussion about operations and business conditions in the post-pandemic economy.
Later, President Williams will visit Bridgeport, where he will meet with workforce development practitioners to discuss the challenges facing those who are counted among the long-term unemployed.
