Barreto, Chairman The Latino Coalition  Remarks: Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO, Job Creator's Network Remarks: Peter Villegas, Vice President, The Coca Cola Company MOU Signing: Latino's for Tennessee & Asian Chamber of Commerce Job Creators Network: Small Business: Revving the engine of growth through lower taxes, less regulation and greater access to capital. Small business is the backbone of the American economy—responsible for nearly 70 percent of all new job creation. But many times, government policy doesn’t treat them that way and instead applies high taxes, burdensome regulations, and credit restrictions onto their operations. Lifting those government mandates will unleash their full economic potential. Panelists will share how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and reduced regulations have improved their outlook for their businesses and the economy, and what else needs to be done to get the economy to full throttle.  Time: 10:00 a.m.-11:20 a.m. Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO, JOB Creator's Network: 15 minute Presentation  Job Creators Network: Small Business: Revving the engine of growth through lower taxes, less regulation and greater access to capital.
