President George W. Bush is dedicated to building stronger communities across the country, and realizes the importance of nurturing the Asian American and Pacific Islanders in America. On May 13, 2004, President George W. Bush signed Executive Order 13339 increasing economic opportunity and business participation of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. The Executive Order renewed the President's Advisory Commission -- charged with focusing on providing opportunities for AAPIs.
