by | May 16, 2016 | Articles

Aloha Kākou!

We would like to invite you to join us for a special Export University Series seminar on exporting to Japan! Japan is Hawaii’s #1 trading partner, and this seminar will explore new opportunities for Hawaii products and services including consumer products, cosmetics, gifts, food products, active wear & more! Learn about the exciting prospects for Hawaii companies in the Japanese market directly from country representatives and business leaders!

The seminar will feature Yuri Arthur, Commercial Officer at the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo. During our panel discussion, we will hear from local businesspeople who will share their secrets for doing business in Japan successfully. Learn how to leverage Hi-STEP (http://invest.hawaii.gov/exporting/histep/) grant funded tradeshow opportunities. We will also cover the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and seek to answer the question: If TPP becomes law, how will it affect the Hawaii – Japan trading relationship?

Don’t miss this opportunity!
