The mission of PISBDCN is to support the growth and economic development of the U.S. affiliated islands in the Western Pacific region by providing high quality training and one-on-one confidential counseling to existing small business and to small business start-ups.
PISBDCN supports a well-established, respected, adequately funded and capable Small Business Development Center network, recognized by the public, the private sector and host entities as the preeminent economic development agency in the region providing high quality business counseling, training, and information. PISBDCN will continue to build strong, effective, and functional partnerships while recognizing the cultural diversity of its constituents and will seek to overcome any barriers to their participation in the PISBDCN’s program and activities, including those arising from differences of language and culture.
