Demystifying Chinese Investment:

Opportunities and Challenges for Hawaii

 

 

While tourism synergies, a low crime rate, cultural affinity, and geographic advantage contribute toward Hawaii’s potential for Chinese investment, the lack of sector diversity, a saturated market, and competition for viable investment targets create investment challenges. Better alignment of investment objectives, an exploration of novel business opportunities, and the provision of tailored services will be required to help Hawaii capitalize on opportunities for Chinese investment.
