“We always say that it’s kind of hard … to do business in Hawaii. … (But) if that was the case, we wouldn’t have a startup community. We wouldn’t have some of the most vibrant and financially strong banks in the country. We wouldn’t have a robust tourism economy, all of these different things.” - Luis Salaveria, Director, state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism
