Insights - APEC: How Did It Go?

This week's episode of INSIGHTS is the last of a three-part series of discussions about the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), which convened last week in Honolulu. Moanalua and Waianae High Schools will present stories on President Obama's news conference and the First Lady's visit to MA'O Farms.

Dan Boylan and his guests will evaluate how months of planning were executed while the world focused on Hawaii as this year's APEC host location. Guests will review short and long-term effects of the APEC meetings, including matters related to traffic, security and our local economy.

Scheduled guests include: Peter Carlisle, Mayor of the City & County of Honolulu; Charles Morrison, President of the East-West Center and a member of the Hawaii Host Committee for APEC; Mike McCartney, President and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority and representing the APEC 2011 Hawaii Host Committee; and Major Clayton Kau, HPD spokesman.

This conversation was recorded on November 17, 2011 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30.
