Guiterrez sees Hispanic firms as part of Gulf Coast relief effort

The nation's Hispanic-owned businesses are critical to the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina, U.S. Commerce Secretary Carlos Guiterrez said Friday in Milwaukee. "The recovery from Hurricane Katrina requires a strong response from business," Guiterrez told about 1,000 people at the International Breakfast during the annual convention of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce at the Midwest Airlines Center. "I hope to see Hispanic businesses at the forefront of this effort.

"There's a great business opportunity on the Gulf Coast," Guiterrez added. "These people need basic services. Small businesses can meet those needs.

"But afterward, when the rebuilding is finished, there may be no better place to invest in this country than in New Orleans," Guiterrez said.

The secretary's comments echoed those of President Bush, who announced a recovery plan for the Gulf Coast Thursday night. Guiterrez said that his agency has established a national hotline for Katrina victims, 888-4USADOC, and has worked to help companies get a variety of goods and services to the afflicted areas.
