Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation

This week on Insights on PBS Hawaii, we'll be talking about all things APEC. The acronym has fast become a household word here, as Hawaii will be hosting the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Leaders' Meeting in November. President Barack Obama will attend, along with leaders of the 20 other economies that make up the APEC group. What will they discuss? What preparations are underway? What will it mean for Hawaii tourism, business and economy? What are the potential traffic and security concerns?

We'll find out on Thursday, May 26 at 7:30 pm when Dan Boylan hosts Chrystn Eads, Deputy Managing Director, City & County of Honolulu; Tim Johns, Vice Chair of APEC 2011 Hawaii Host Committee (and President & CEO of the Bishop Museum); and Lt. Governor Brian Schatz.

This conversation was recorded on May 26, 2011 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30.
