In preparation for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Leader’s Week conference in November, Enterprise Honolulu and Maui Economic Development Board are hosting a series of free workshop designed to show how APEC can be the catalyst to expanding Maui business into new international markets.

The first workshop of the series will be held on Friday, June 24 and feature representative from Enterprise Honolulu, a Honolulu-based economic development organization, and other Hawaii economic development associations. Information on the basics of how attendees can connect with key partner opportunities in APEC member countries will be shared.
