NPC Virtual Newsmaker: Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President Robert S. Kaplan
Business owners across the country – from restaurants and specialty shops to beauty salons and fitness centers – have dramatically changed the way they operate in order to help stem the tide of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even with all of these new protective measures and protocols in place, however, the question remains: as businesses reopen their doors, will their customers feel comfortable enough to come back? On Monday, July 13, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President and CEO Robert S. Kaplan will deliver a live national address on why he believes continuous and widespread testing for COVID-19 is the key to restoring consumer confidence and jumpstarting America’s economic recovery. He also will discuss his outlook for the U.S. economy for the remainder of 2020 and into 2021.
This 1-hour program will stream live at 1:00 p.m. ET as part of the National Press Club’s Virtual Newsmaker series, and is accessible to both the media and members of the general public free-of-charge.
Mr. Kaplan’s remarks will be followed by a moderated question-and-answer session with National Press Club Board Member and Marketplace Host/Correspondent Kimberly Adams. Viewers are invited to submit their questions for Mr. Kaplan via email to [email protected] Our moderator will ask as many questions as time permits.
