Tsutsui to lead trade mission to Philippines

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 05:25 a.m. HST, Jan 29, 2013

The Hawaii Filipino Chamber of Commerce says Lt. Gov. Shan Tsutsui will lead the organization's upcoming trade mission to the Philippines.

The chamber says the trip will begin Friday and will include more than 40 business executives.

The goal of the trip is to stimulate trade and investment in Hawaii and the Philippines.

Officials also want to encourage the development of green energy technology.

The chamber says Tsutsui will travel with the delegation to cities known for their successful economies and emphasis on environmental sustainability.

The organization says the delegation will travel to the Ilocos region because of its historical ties to many Filipinos who immigrated to Hawaii more than a century ago.

This is part of the government plan that involved the ceded lands being developed by not Japanese or Chinese but Filipino money and thus the PLDC thrust. The money is not in the bank yet, but will be, as the offshore manufacturing that helped make the Communist Party rich in China is being shifted to the islands. Imagine the wealth involved - it's staggering and Hawaii is in perfect position to capitalize on it, except the guys down at the state capital are in charge, and not private enterprise. There is no private enterprise in Hawaii, except for the presence of three or four cyber billionaires - who need to organize themselves into a Hui together with the native and Natives to take charge of this opportunity so the ali'i trusts do not make even more billions at the expense of the rest of us!!!!!!!
