NAIOP South Florida Welcomes More Than 160 Attendees for Economic Outlook 2017

NAIOP South Florida, a Commercial Real Estate Development Organization, welcomed more than 160 members and guests to its annual Economic Outlook seminar, which explored how the Trump administration’s political and economic initiatives will affect Americans in 2017.

Moderated by Butters Realty & Management Senior Vice President Darcie Lunsford, the Economic Outlook panel consisted of Gunster Board of Directors Chairman and former U.S. Senator George LeMieux, The Washington Economics Group, Inc. Founder and Principal J. Antonio Villamil and Wells Fargo Securities Managing Director and Senior Economist Mark Vitner.

The panelists covered the regional, national and international effects of the new administration’s role in a spectrum of topics including trade, employment, immigration, regulation and taxes, healthcare, foreign relations and more.

“This was undoubtedly one of our best Economic Outlook seminars to-date,” said NAIOP South Florida Executive Director Jules Morgan. “With no shortage of topics to cover, we heard from a very engaging panel about what we can expect from the Trump administration’s new policies. Attendees were left with a great deal to think about given the discussed ramifications of cutbacks on Obamacare, tax hikes on Mexican imports, the border wall, strained international relations, the axing of TPP, renegotiations for NAFTA, tensions regarding the South China Sea and more.”

NAIOP is a commercial real estate development organization. It provides strong advocacy, education and business networking opportunities and connects its members through a powerful North American network.
