Gov. Neil Abercrombie is returning to Hawaii from a two-week trip to Japan and China.
Abercrombie is schedule to land in Honolulu today. His office says he's expected to hold a press conference at the state Capitol on Monday to discuss his trip.
Abercrombie was among a delegation of six governors who participated in a National Governors Association U.S.-China Governors Forum in Beijing.
The governor's office says the forum focuses on economic development and job creation.
The governor says building on Hawaii's relationships with Japan and China is important not only for the state's visitor industry but also for longstanding cultural connections.
