Building Business Bridges
The United States Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce (USPAACC) introduced its Southeast chapter with the business colloquy "Opportunities and Breakthroughs" on September 30, 2004 at the corporate headquarters of United Parcel Service (UPS) in Atlanta, GA. USPAACC, a twenty-year-old national organization caters to Asian American and minority-owned companies that wish to do business with major corporations and government agencies.
The Southeast chapter will be headed by a prominent businessman and community leader Mr. P.I. Joy, the founder and CEO of Think Development Systems, Inc (TDS) and the Chairman of American United Bank. He also told that USPAACC-SE will establish strategic partnerships with many corporations in the coming year which would provide tremendous value for minority owned business in the Southeast United States.
At the business colloquy, corporate and government representatives talked about their respective organization's practice and procedures, essential contact information for different areas of purchases, and their forecast on future purchases in various commodities and services. The importance of certification and e-sourcing was also discussed. For Asian American suppliers and other minority business owners, this business colloquy provided the venue and opportunity to meet key decision-makers in government agencies and corporate America, who are looking for innovative and competitive suppliers.
USPAACC will host CelebrAsian 2005 in early May of next year in Washington, DC, to commemorate the 20th year anniversary of USPAACC. CelebrAsian 2005 will be the largest Asian American business conference in the United States and the only national conference designed for the Asian American business community.
