Advancing America's Economy

 

A National Virtual Summit on Advancing the American Economy

Reviving the economy won’t be like flipping on a switch.

Industries differ, and each will have to sort out new practices and new standards in a time when the coronavirus remains a menace and predator.

But it’s important to begin discussing what responsible reopening of the US economy looks like – what safeguards can be put in place, and how to begin creating high-trust environments in which America’s economic livelihood can get off of life support and begin to thrive once again.

The Hill Virtually Live will convene leading officials, members of congress and the nation’s health experts for a virtual summit on restoring the economy.

The summit will take part throughout one day, featuring three one-hour segments.
