As all previous hosts of APEC can attest, the opportunity is unique and complex.  We invite you to attend a series of three workshops we are conducting in all four Counties throughout Hawaii.  These workshops are designed to assist our community in connecting with the APEC member economies for mutual long-term economic benefit.

Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, or APEC, is a 21-member association of economies from the Asia-Pacific region working together to advance regional economic integration and prosperity.  APEC is comprised of 21 member economies, including Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, the Republic of the Philippines, The Russian Federation, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, The United States and Vietnam.


We are hosting a series of FREE workshops about how APEC can be the catalyst to expand your business into new markets. Each workshop will be from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. and be held in every County. Please select the workshop that works best for you. We request that you attend all three workshops which will build upon each other. 


Pre-event reservations are required to participate.


Representatives from Enterprise Honolulu and the Counties’ Economic Development Boards will share more about the basics of how workshop participants can connect with key partner opportunities in APEC member economies.
