David A. HinsonMinority-owned businesses continue to shine as the engines of job growth in the United States economy. These businesses provide nearly six million jobs, and annually generate $1 trillion in economic output. Supporting this output is the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), a bureau in the U.S. Department of Commerce. MBDA is the only federal agency tasked to promote the growth and global competitiveness of minority-owned firms. MBDA assists minority-owned firms in gaining access to capital, contracts and new domestic and international markets.
