Tomorrow, the White House, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Council of the Americas, will host the White House Conference on Connecting the Americas leading up to the President's participation in the 6th Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia this weekend. Building off the Summit's theme – “Connecting the Americas: Partners in Prosperity,” Obama Administration officials will join Hispanic community and business leaders from across the country who have cultural and economic ties to the rest of the Americas to further identify ways in which they can partner up with the Administration to promote economic growth and prosperity.
