After I finished 300 hours intern in Small Business Development Center (SDBC), I found that governmental associate is necessary and useful for small business. Below is my finding about how American government, especially during Bush’s Administration, helps small business. The paper includes: 1) Legislation and the special stimulus plan. 2) Service through Small Business Administration (SBA). 3) Priorities for small businesses in governmental procurement and 4) Disaster assist and special programs. After that, I provided Chinese small business department with nine suggestions that I developed from the knowledge that I learned in the United States.
