ALOHA, E Komo Mai! While the Hawaiian islands are traditionally considered so very far away from London, the world is getting smaller due to technology and Honolulu has more connections with the UK than one might think. Hawaiian Airlines recently started a direct service from JFK, so travellers from the UK can now fly directly from the East Coast of America onward to Honolulu in addition to the usual option to transfer from Los Angeles. While part of Honolulu’s charm is its simple and playful beach lifestyle, the City and County of Honolulu also has particular strengths within the tech sector. We have 3 main objectives:
- To equally promote Honolulu-based and British businesses with a special emphasis on tech related to the environment.
- To promote and support events and activities that may be of mutual interest to both people and businesses in Honolulu and Britain.
- To grow the Tech London Advocates community to include the outer islands, other parts of the Asia-Pacific region and collaboration with neighboring countries like Japan, The Philippines, China, Korea, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
