Asian Chamber Position
The Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce: Our Position and View on the Small Business Imperative
The Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce (VACC) was founded to protect the interests of 47,500+ (and fast growing) Asian Pacific American businesses in the Commonwealth of Virginia (and in the Carolinas, Georgia, Maryland, Delaware, and District of Columbia) where a growing number of VACC members headquarters are located. We relentlessly champion the vitality, profitability, and economic strength of our fast growing membership.
Since 2005, in Washington and all around the country, we work with the White House, top members of the Administration,A.S.E.A.N and A.P.E.C country leaders and we also collaborate with several other fellow state Asian American Chambers.In Virginia, we work with Virginia legislators and the administration to build a climate in which small Asian American businesses can thrive.
This mission requires that VACC level the playing field by stopping anti-American business practices, promoting the increased access to affordable capital for small Asian businesses and help raise the local, state, and federal mandate for contracting with small, Asian and other minority, and women businesses to 50% while spreading the message to the people to support U.S. small businesses.
Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders represent the true fabric of the U.S economy. We also care about American jobs and our communities.
As Americans make purchasing decisions every day, we need to understand the real impact that these decisions have on the local communities. VACC helps the government and community understand the fundamental link between America’s purchasing habits and this impact on vitality of the American communities: To empower America we must align purchasing choice with positive economic and community wellness as concrete outcomes.
