                Proclamation 7926 of September 9, 2005

                
Minority Enterprise Development Week, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Across our country, the entrepreneurial spirit of 
                minority businesses is strong and growing. By creating 
                jobs and advancing opportunities, these businesses 
                improve lives and transform neighborhoods throughout 
                our Nation. During Minority Enterprise Development 
                Week, we recognize minority entrepreneurs and their 
                employees for their commitment to free enterprise and 
                equal opportunity.

                Minority businesses are an essential part of a society 
                in which personal initiative is encouraged and in which 
                opportunity is within the reach of all of our citizens. 
                Significant increases in minority business ownership 
                are providing an engine for economic growth and helping 
                more of our citizens succeed. By fueling job creation 
                and providing goods and services to consumers, these 
                businesses are helping to lift communities and provide 
                hope.

                In order to extend the promise of our country to all of 
                our citizens, our economy must continue to grow and 
                expand. My Administration is working to keep taxes low, 
                protect small businesses from needless regulation and 
                frivolous lawsuits, and reduce global trade barriers to 
                open up new markets for American entrepreneurs. We have 
                provided new market tax credits to boost investment and 
                community development in low-income areas, and we are 
                working to stimulate and support minority businesses by 
                providing training and mentoring.

                Minority businesses help ensure that our country is a 
                land of opportunity. Their example reflects the best 
                qualities of America, demonstrating that every person 
                has the opportunity to strive for a better future and 
                to take part in the promise of our great Nation.

                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 September 11 through 
                September 17, 2005, as Minority Enterprise Development 
                Week. I call upon all Americans to celebrate this week 
                with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities 
                to recognize the important contributions of our 
                Nation's minority enterprises.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                ninth day of September, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand five, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and thirtieth.
