According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, China is Hawaiis second largest export partner.  In 2017, Hawaii exported a total of $124.3 million to China; however, most of the merchandise shipped to China from Hawaii was not produced in Hawaii.  DBEDT will report on trade statistics between Hawaii and China.

 

The committee will be briefed on the potential impacts of recent tariff disputes especially on the areas of educational exchanges between the two regions.

 

Also, the committee will hear from the Department of Agriculture on agricultural trade and DBEDT's Research and Economic Analysis Division administered by Dr. Eugene Tian, Chief State Economist.

 

 

No public testimony will be accepted.
