Aug. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Kansas City Federal Reserve President Esther George said that she hopes the central bank’s Jackson Hole symposium will yield insights on current monetary policy.

“I remain committed to preserving the symposium’s reputation for identifying timely issues that are addressed with intellectual rigor,” George said today in opening remarks over dinner to central bankers and economists at an annual forum in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

This year the title of the meeting, sponsored by the Kansas City Fed, is “The Changing Policy Landscape.”

George said she looks forward to “engaging over the next two days in what I hope will be a productive dialogue.”

Fed Chairman Ben S. Bernanke has an opportunity to update his policy outlook in a speech at the symposium tomorrow at 10 a.m. New York time.
