Asian American & Pacific Islander Program

On May 13, 2004, President George W. Bush signed Executive Order 13339 to increase economic opportunities for and improve the quality of life of approximately fourteen million Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) living in the United States and the U.S. and Pacific Island jurisdictions. This action renews a previous Executive Order, which established the President's Advisory Commission and a federal Interagency Working Group on AAPIs.
