Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker said Friday she’s not concerned about America being eclipsed by China as the top economy in the world.

“I think America is in a terrific position,” she said on MSNBC. “Our workforce is one of our greatest assets as well. So for me when I look at the opportunities in America, I see endless opportunities.”

“I’m very optimistic about what we can get done here in the United States,” she said.

She also said the U.S. is attractive option for businessman looking for where to base their companies.

“They want to be here, they’re coming in droves,” she said. “They’re coming to the Commerce Department for help so they can put their plants and businesses here.”
