The Filipino Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii (FCCH) and the State of Hawaii, in collaboration with the Philippine Consulate General in Honolulu, Hawaii-Philippines Business & Economic Council (HPBEC) and Hawaii’s business and community organizations, will be hosting the MabuHI Pacific Expo & Summit on July 24-26, 2020 at the Hawaii Convention Center.

The goal of the event is to strengthen and maximize opportunities provided by the sister relationships between the State of Hawai’i and its local governments with their counterparts in the Philippines. Accordingly, the symposium will be structured to allow participants to share ideas, learn new strategies in governance or community organizing, showcase successful initiatives that strengthen links between Hawai`i and the Philippines, or share new technologies and creative use of social media.

Here are opportunities to become part of this inaugural event!
