SACRAMENTO – The California Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce (CAPCC) and the Asian Business Association (ABA) collaborate on a milestone summit focused on Asian businesses and their economic impact on the future of California.
According to American Immigration Council, California Asian-owned businesses alone represent sales and receipts of over $181.3 billion. The first annual California Asian Business Summit will explore opportunities around areas of international trade, the new green economy, supplier diversity and technology. The event will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at the JW Marriott in Los Angeles.
The summit will bring together corporate, business, and government leaders and consist of a networking breakfast and lunch, numerous breakout sessions with highlighted economic leaders, experts in international trade, innovative technology demonstrations, and will culminate with the ABA’s 36th annual awards banquet, presented by Toyota.
“Our goal at CAPCC is to grow and empower the Asian Pacific Islander (API) business community throughout the state. We are excited to be working with our partners at ABA to bring together the collective voices of the over 500,000 API businesses in our state to this one special unifying event,” said Andy Wong, summit co-chair, board chairman of CAPCC, and business banking president of Wells Fargo’s Northern California Division.
“We have worked extremely hard to bring in some of the top economic advisors and leaders in our state and nation to make this a unique and special event,” added Ronald Wong, summit co-chair and president of Imprenta Communications Group. “This is shaping up to be the ‘must attend’ event of the year for API business leaders in our state.”
CAPCC has partnered with the ABA for this special event due to a shared goal of bringing together divergent groups spanning the Asian business community on issues that mutually affect their business interests.
CAPCC and ABA are non-profit membership-based organizations that have been proactively helping Asian American small businesses to gain access to economic opportunities and advancement, as well as providing outreach programs with major corporations and public agencies.
