Hawai’i hosted the Asia-Pa­cific Eco­nomic Co­op­er­a­tion Lead­ers Meet­ing (APEC) in Novem­ber 2011, bring­ing po­lit­i­cal and busi­ness lead­ers from 21 na­tions to Hawai’i. The event was a success de­spite the chal­lenges of hav­ing peo­ple from dif­fer­ent cul­tures. Hawai’i’s pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tor had pre­pared ex­ten­sively for APEC by in­vest­ing mil­lions of dol­lars in in­fras­truc­ture im­prove­ments. Groups com­ing to Hawai’i now en­joy the ben­e­fits of th­ese im­prove­ments. Hawai’i has a 4.166 per cent gen­eral ex­cise tax (4.712 on O’ahu) for most busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties and a 9.25 per cent ac­com­mo­da­tion tax. For more in­for­ma­tion www.hawaii.gov/tax
