First Hawaiian Bank hosts its 38th Annual Maui County Business Outlook Forum on Friday, September 7, 2012 at the Maui Beach Hotel in Kahului.

The event includes a presentation entitled, “Maui Economy in 2013” led by Dr. Leroy O. Laney, Professor of Economics and Finance at Hawaii Pacific University.

Laney’s forecast last year for Maui called for a “mixed bag,” with a strong showing in the visitor industry, but weakness in other sectors including the construction industry.

That will be followed by a presentation entitled, “U. S. & Global Economic Forecast” led by Dr. Jack Suyderhoud, Professor of Business Economics at Shidler College of Business, and the University of Hawaii at Manoa.


The forum begins with registration at 7:30 a.m., followed by continental breakfast at 8 a.m., and the presentations scheduled from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. in the Elleair Rainbow Ballroom.
