FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 20, 2015

Los Angeles - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles) joined leaders of the LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce to talk economic growth, innovation and entrepreneurism at the Chamber’s annual membership meeting.  The mission of the LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce is to promote business and enhance the vitality of the community through member services, educational programs, strategic partnerships, community outreach and legislative advocacy.  Representatives from The Boeing Company were co-hosts of the event as well.

After the event, Congressman Lieu issued the following statement:

“The mission of the LAX Chamber of Commerce – to empower and grow businesses in Westchester/LAX, Marina Del Rey, Playa Vista, Playa Del Rey, and surrounding beach cities – underscores the fact that we can't fund important programs if we don't have strong businesses doing well in California.  Since I arrived in Washington D.C. in January to succeed the legendary Henry Waxman, I have been fighting to create opportunities for the South Bay including financing more exports and keeping our tech, aerospace and biotech industries strong.  I am also an unwavering advocate of creating new jobs by reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank and passing long term funding for the Highway Trust Fund.  I greatly look forward to working with the LAX Chamber to promote and grow business in the South Bay and beyond.”
