Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce Talks Economic Development at White House
JNS.org – Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce founder and CEO Duvi Honig visited the White House on Oct. 16, where he met top officials to assist in fostering economic growth.
Honig, whose umbrella organization of various-sized businesses is based in New York and New Jersey, met Mark Zelden, acting director of the Department of Labor’s Centers for Faith and Opportunity Initiatives, to reach an agreement on joint projects that will be announced once finalized.
Honig also met with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.
At the state level, Honig has actively worked with New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and other officials in creating an “Economic Development Day,” scheduled for May 2019.
“I am thankful to the leaders at all governmental levels, of both parties, who recognize that we all share common economic interests and can work together for the common good,” said Honig. “The OJC’s network and collaborative efforts are growing exponentially, and we will leave no stone unturned to continue expanding and innovating in order to empower men and women around the world.”
