CONGRATULATING THE MASSACHUSETTS LATINO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE -- (Senate - December 12, 2005)
Mr. KERRY. Mr. President. I wish to congratulate the Massachusetts Latino Chamber of Commerce, La Cámara de Comercio, on the opening of their new Business Center in Springfield, MA. The Business Center will be the home of a number of Latino-owned businesses as well as providing owners with workshops and trainings for members to gain knowledge in their perspective business area. In addition, the center will establish a computer lab to assist members with business research and planning. The new center will serve as a resource able to provide support, referral, and advocacy services to small business owners. La Cámara de Comercio will establish a computer center to assist members with business research and planning, as well as business language seminars. Latino businesses across the Commonwealth from Springfield to Boston are helping us to better compete in the global market. It is my privilege to congratulate La Cámara de Comercio on this new endeavor.
