May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. We are so pleased to be collaborating with the Asian Business Association San Diego to share stories of Asian and Pacific Islander businesses in San Diego County. These businesses have a rich heritage and have significantly shaped the history of our region and nation. 

For the entire month of May, the San Diego Business Journal is dedicating a special section in each issue to share and tell their inspiring stories. Business owners will also be recognized on Thursday May 20th, 2021. The San Diego Business Journal and the Asian Business Association San Diego will present the 2021 Asian Pacific Islander Businesses of the Year Awards, as well as a panel discussion on celebrating, uniting, and creating change in the San Diego region. 

We hope these stories and virtual event will not only inform but build an increasing awareness of the Asian Pacific Islander Business community.
