February 8, 2023 – WASHINGTON, D.C. –
On Tuesday, February 7, 2023, President Biden delivered the State of the Union Address and underscored the Biden-Harris administration’s
commitment to ensuring increased opportunity through business ownership. The last two years have demonstrated major economic gains for the small business economy as demonstrated by new business registrations, the State of the Union Address both reinforced
that fact and signaled a commitment from policymakers to ensure that all business owners, including the Black-owned business community, have the means to thrive.
Ron Busby, Sr. President, and CEO of the U.S. Black Chambers Inc. said the following about the State of the Union Address:
“This Administration’s commitment to ensuring increased opportunity for the business owners in our network underscores the dedication that has gone into
the successes of the last two years. Though we realize there is still much work to be done, especially through our partnership with the Administration and members of Congress, we look forward to supporting the efforts led by the President to continue increasing
opportunity for our firms. While there are many challenges ahead, we look forward to working together to achieve long-lasting policy change that drives economic growth for Black business owners across America.”
