WASHINGTON – Today, Gina M. Raimondo was sworn in as the 40th U.S. Secretary of Commerce.

“The Commerce Department has a simple but vital mission — to spur good-paying jobs, empower entrepreneurs to innovate and grow, and help American workers and businesses compete,” said Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo. “Growing economic opportunity for American businesses and workers is the mission that has driven my career, and as we face overlapping crises that have hurt our economy and robbed too many families of their sense of financial security, that mission is more critical than ever. The Commerce Department will work relentlessly to create good-paying jobs, level the playing field for our workers and businesses, and build an economy that does not leave any communities behind. I am honored to assume this position and ready to get work for the American people.”
