FOR FY 2004 - FY 2009

The Department of Commerce and its component bureaus create the conditions for economic growth and opportunity by promoting innovation, entrepreneurship, competitiveness and stewardship. The Department of Commerce’s mission is linked directly to encouraging the economic growth that benefits all American industries, workers and consumers; enhancing technological leadership and environmental stewardship, and advocating market growth strategies. The responsibilities of the Department of Commerce are to foster U.S. business and industry; stimulate international trade; measure and analyze social development and economic activity; advance our nation’s scientific and technological capabilities; and understand, predict, and protect the natural environment.

With these principles guiding us, we present the Department of Commerce’s strategic plan for the fiscal years 2004 through 2009. The plan highlights our efforts to respond to and influence the three major forces that will shape the U.S. economy of the future: the enhancement of economic growth for American industries, workers, and consumers (see Goal 1), science and technological leadership (see Goal 2), and environmental stewardship (see Goal 3).
