The midyear conference "will focus on the outlook for growth and expansion in the face of a number of recent developments: the beginning of interest rate hike cycle by the Federal Reserve ("the visible hand"), the slump in oil prices, the surge in dollar and the global slowdown," Farka explained. "We will discuss our outlook for expansions and the main risks to the economy over the next two years," she said.
