The future of tax policy, international business, energy, finance, and healthcare under a Trump administration were discussed during aWednesday’s Thought Leader Symposium hosted by World Trade Center Utah and Zions Bank. Uncertainty was the key takeaway because the incoming president has a history of being unpredictable.
All of the panelists gave Utah a current A or B grade in the topics they were asked to cover, but the outlook moving forward was not so definitive. Questions were asked about protectionist policies, proposed tax cuts, the future of the affordable care act and anticipated changes to air quality policy and energy development opportunities.
Titled Utah’s Economy Under a Trump Administration, the Thought Leader Symposium was attended by 200 business and community leaders. It was the fourth Thought Leader Symposium of 2016. The event was produced in partnership with the Salt Lake Chamber, Governor’s Office of Economic Development, EDCUtah and Governor’s Office of Energy Development. A recording of the event can be viewed on the WTC Utah Facebook page.
