WASHINGTON, Feb. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- President Donald J. Trump will address The Latino Coalition (TLC) Legislative Summit on Wednesday, March 4 at the JW Marriott in Washington, D.C.
Convening small-business owners, business influencers and elected officials from across the country, the TLC Legislative Summit is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to build their professional network while advocating for the public policies that impact them most.
"We are pleased to welcome President Trump back to The Latino Coalition stage," said Hector Barreto, TLC's Chairman and former U.S. Small Business Administrator. "The president and his administration have led an economic expansion by creating an environment where small businesses can survive and thrive. With record-low unemployment levels, outstanding job growth and strong GDP, this administration has a proven track record that is worthy of celebrating."
A friend to the organization, President Trump will keynote The Latino Coalition's Leadership Luncheon, discussing our country's Great American economic comeback thanks to a record number of job-killing regulations, enacting historic and record-setting tax cuts, and fighting for fair and reciprocal trade agreements.
Throughout the day, panels will examine critical legislative and policy issues such as procurement, technology, education and regulatory reforms.
The Legislative Summit will also include notable guests such as: newly confirmed U.S. Small Business Administrator Jovita Carranza; U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson; U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos; U.S. Rep. Tony Cardenas (CA-29); U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX); U.S. Rep. William Hurd (TX-23); Jennifer Korn, Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Director of the White House Office of Liaison; U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-13); Ruben Barrales, Senior Vice President, External Relations, Wells Fargo & Company; Dan Bryant, SVP Global Public Policy and Government Affairs Walmart; Eric Hoplin, Head of External Relations for Wells Fargo & Company and Daniel Garza, President The Libre Initiative to name a few.
"Creating and maintaining the best possible business environment for entrepreneurs is the duty and responsibility of our elected and appointed officials," Barreto added. "And while election years present their own opportunities and challenges for politicians, small-business owners expect our half of the economy to be prioritized, always. Our Summit will remind leaders in Washington, D.C. that meaningful reforms can happen in an election year – because good policy is good politics!"
