WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell will deliver remarks next week at an annual central bank forum in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the Fed said in a statement on Thursday.

Powell’s comments on “Challenges for Monetary Policy” at the major economic policy forum on Aug. 23 come amid heightened concerns over the potential for a recession given an ongoing U.S.-China trade fight and signs of weakness in a number of countries overseas.
