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.
