Strengthening Economic Recovery
In 2011, President Clinton launched Clinton Global Initiative America to address economic recovery in the United States. The Clinton Global Initiative America meeting brings together leaders in business, government, and civil society to generate and implement Commitments to Action that create jobs, stimulate economic growth, foster innovation, and support workforce development in the United States.
The 2012 Clinton Global Initiative America meeting took place in June, and resulted in more than 50 new Commitments to Action, valued at more than $1 billion. When fully funded and implemented, these commitments will create more than 32,000 jobs and fill more than 500,000 vacant positions in the United States, helping to strengthen economic recovery in the United States. Next month, the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting will convene leaders and explore how to further improve economic development, market-based solutions, environments, and systems of government, commerce, and consumption between the public, private and nongovernmental sectors.
