In recognition of National Small Business Week this week, Congressman Owens is highlighting the economic importance of small businesses. This year marks the 51st annual National Small Business Week honoring the vital role of small businesses and the passion of U.S. entrepreneurs.
"Small businesses are critical for U.S. economic growth and job creation, especially for middle class families that count on them for employment and a steady salary," said Rep. Owens. "These businesses also drive innovation and export growth, ensuring long-term U.S. global competitiveness. Supporting local businesses means supporting local jobs, local innovation and economic growth in our communities. I encourage everyone to join me in recognizing small businesses throughout our region this week."
