                Proclamation 7886 of April 14, 2005

                
Small Business Week, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                America's economy is the most prosperous in the world, 
                and the small business sector is one of its great 
                strengths. During Small Business Week, we honor small 
                business owners and workers, and we reaffirm our 
                commitment to keeping America the best place in the 
                world to do business.

                Our economy is strong and growing stronger. More 
                Americans are working today than ever before. The 
                unemployment rate is lower than the average rate of the 
                1970's, 1980's, and 1990's. Homeownership is at a 
                record high. Family incomes are rising. Small 
                businesses are at the heart of this growth, creating 
                most new private-sector jobs in our economy and helping 
                our citizens succeed.

                My Administration is committed to keeping small 
                businesses vibrant and strong. We provided tax relief 
                and streamlined tax reporting requirements for small 
                businesses. We are working to reduce the burden of 
                unnecessary regulation and excessive litigation. We are 
                working to make health care more available and 
                affordable. We are opening up markets for U.S. products 
                through free trade agreements and by enforcing existing 
                trade laws. And we have promoted a culture of ownership 
                so that more people can own their own homes and start 
                their own businesses.

                As small business owners and employees add to the 
                vitality of our economy, they also inspire others to 
                realize the full promise of our Nation. I join all 
                Americans in celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit and 
                hard work of our small business owners and employees.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim April 24 through April 30, 
                2005, as Small Business Week. I call upon all the 
                people of the United States to observe this week with 
                appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs that 
                celebrate the achievements of small business owners and 
                their employees and encourage and foster the 
                development of new small businesses.
