Washington D.C. gets a little bit of aloha with 'Hawaii on the Hill'

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Hawaii will once again take center-stage in nation’s capital. Next week the 3rd annual Hawaii on the Hill will take place in Washington, DC. The now yearly tradition is to help emphasize what Hawaii has to offer in addition to being a visitor destination.

There are two major components to this event: a policy summit which is an opportunity to discuss policy issues and to share the unique aspects of doing business in Hawaii with national leaders. It’s also an opportunity to connect island businesses with federal agencies, and the popular Taste of Hawaii on Capitol Hill: A chance to show-off our tasty island cuisine and other uniquely Hawaii products.

At this year’s “Hawaii on the Hill” gathering, Hawaii's Senators and Representatives will have a chance to meet with Representatives from the Department of Energy, Department of Defense, Department of Commerce, Department of State, Department of the Treasury and the Federal Communications Commission. The Policy Summit is a real opportunity to connect Hawaii business with federal agencies and to discuss policy issues and to share the unique aspects of doing business in Hawaii with national leaders.

In the past, this has included how to sell products to the federal government, and learning more about federal resources that are available to small businesses.

The Chamber of Commerce Hawaii is pleased to lead this effort to bring Hawaii to the Hill in Washington, D.C., June 7 & 8, for the third year in a row, sharing Hawaii’s food, culture and industries with Congressional leaders and other policymakers. More than 50 Hawaii businesses are participating – ranging from snack companies to defense contractors. Many of these businesses are represented here on this display table.
