According to a recent study released by the University of Tennessee, Tennessee has the third fastest growing Hispanic population in the country and represents one of the fastest growing consumer markets in the United States. Hispanics have the greatest purchasing power of any US ethnic group and taken together will soon represent the world’s ninth largest economy. Latinos represent 4.6 percent of Tennessee’s population, according to the 2010 Census, up from 2.2 percent in 2000.
LCCT has a great opportunity to support and promote Hispanic businesses and to help forge strategic relationships between Hispanic and mainstream businesses and government agencies seeking minority vendors, subcontractors and employees.
