Dear President Trump, Majority Leader McConnell and Minority Leader Schumer,

On behalf of US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation (USPAACC), which represents Asian American business owners in the United States, we want to thank you for the emergency measures you have worked so hard to help small businesses in this time of economic distress.

USPAACC is the most established and largest national nonprofit organization representing Pan Asian American and other diverse businesses. This year, we celebrate 35 years of a successful track record in educating, training and business matchmaking by connecting our constituents to Fortune 1000 corporations, government, nonprofits and small and diverse businesses.

We have a grassroots presence with regional chapters in the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest and West, and in the Washington, DC-Maryland-Virginia area.

We hope your Administration and the Congress will reach an agreement as soon as possible, on the $1.8 trillion stimulus plan. Each day of delay to reach an agreement, small businesses are forced to lay off workers and/or close their businesses.

The majority of our business members are starting to experience the dire effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some have even had to lay off workers.

The sooner the $1.8 trillion stimulus package passes the Congress, our members, as well as small business owners across the country, will see a ray of economic recovery.

As your Administration continues work on the recovery plan, we would look forward to working with you and to propose new ideas.

We, as Asian American small business owners, have the same problems as other business owners in America. However, we do have some unique challenges. And, we would like a seat at the table to discuss them.

Again, thank you for all the work you are doing for America’s small businesses.

Sincerely yours,

Susan Au Allen
National President & CEO

Is Starting a New Business a Good Idea in These Times?

As the cost of living continues to rise, more people are exploring new ways to start to reach financial independence — and it’s easy to understand why. A huge gap exists between the amount of money most professionals make and the amount they need to lead comfortable lives. And this makes it imperative for them to either work longer hours, work two jobs, or in some cases seek greater financial freedom through their own business ventures.
