Chamber Economic Forecast Looks at Supply Chain, Workforce

NILES, Ohio — David Valentiner, director of interest rate management for First National Bank, gave his insights on the economy during the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber’s economic forecast breakfast Thursday morning.

Valentiner touched on the current state of the supply chain and the workforce.

“If you have a very dedicated manufacturing force,” he says, “making sure that you’ve got those skilled workers and people who are doing that type of work, it can really impact things locally that aren’t caught in some of the national numbers.”
