                Proclamation 9350 of October 15, 2015

                
Minority Enterprise Development Week, 2015

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                America is at its best when all our people have the 
                tools and resources they need to pursue their dreams 
                and meet their full potential. Entrepreneurs help spur 
                innovation and prosperity, and ensuring that minority-
                owned businesses remain strong and vibrant is vital to 
                driving our Nation's progress. During Minority 
                Enterprise Development Week, we recognize the crucial 
                role they play in our economy, and we recommit to 
                upholding one of our founding ideals: that all people--
                regardless of what they look like or where they come 
                from--can reach for their piece of the American dream 
                and contribute to our country's success.

                Minority-owned firms comprise over one-fifth of our 
                Nation's businesses and add $1 trillion in output to 
                our economy each year. My Administration is committed 
                to supporting these engines of growth, which is why we 
                have cut taxes 18 times for America's small 
                businesses--of which roughly 15 percent are minority-
                owned. Many minority enterprises also depend on exports 
                as an important source of revenue, and I am pursuing a 
                trade agenda that will allow our businesses to be at 
                the center of today's global economy--further enabling 
                them to expand their horizons while strengthening our 
                middle class. And in an effort to equip the business 
                community with the most relevant information needed to 
                navigate bureaucracy, we launched www.Business.USA.gov, 
                where firms can find services to help them hire more 
                people and grow their enterprise.

                For over two centuries, America has advanced thanks to 
                the grit and inherent ingenuity of our people. 
                Throughout Minority Enterprise Development Week, let us 
                rededicate ourselves to continuing this legacy by 
                empowering all our citizens to utilize their unique 
                talents and abilities and by working to ensure our 
                minority-owned enterprises have every chance to 
                flourish and succeed.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim October 18 through 
                October 24, 2015, as Minority Enterprise Development 
                Week. I call upon all Americans to celebrate this week 
                with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities 
                to recognize the many contributions of our Nation's 
                minority enterprises.
