The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) is the largest Hispanic business organization in America. It actively promotes the economic growth, development and interests of more than 4.2 million Hispanic-owned businesses, which together, contribute over $668 billion to the U.S. economy each year.
