Highlighting the current participation of Hispanic businesses as a key factor in the economic reactivation in the U.S., the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce highlights through an official statement, that "the USHCC 2022 Legislative Summit welcomes the vast exploration of these countless innovative opportunities through public policy, procurement, advocacy, and access to necessary technical assistance to build back better.”
Through a bipartisan effort connecting Latino business leaders with elected officials, the summit seeks to create "a platform for ideas" that gives the economy a chance to grow and businesses a chance to scale, thereby enabling the country to recover its economic vitality.
“At the USHCC, our mission is to promote the growth, development, and interests of more than five million Hispanic-owned businesses that contribute over $800 billion to the American economy every year. This is a topic that transcends political parties. When our businesses succeed, jobs are created, the economy grows stronger, we have better goods and services, and we are more competitive globally,” the statement reads.

“The USHCC along with our corporate partners, chambers of commerce, and respective constituencies is ready to collaborate and advocate for strategic policies that grow Hispanic business, place Hispanics in positions of power in both government and corporations, and provide necessary access to capital and technical assistance to revitalize the American economy,” reads the statement, which also highlights that “the crafting and passage of these policies will require unity, participation, and strategic bipartisan collaboration.”
“This year, we will convene leaders in business, government, and the corporate sectors to discuss the public policy priorities and actions of Hispanic business with the intent to create and influence the greatest impact. To pass legislation that strengthens the Hispanic business community, we will need to work together. That is the idea driving the theme of our 2022 USHCC Legislative Summit,” ends the statement.
