Hawaiʻi promotes itself as a bridge between the US and Asia. Do we have real advantages and opportunities in China's burgeoning marketplaces? This month's High Tech Hawaiʻi broadcast on Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. will focus on the Hawaiʻi-China connection in high tech. Join two of Hawaiʻi's most knowledgeable entrepreneurial thinkers and doers -- Barry Weinman, Chairman, DragonBridge Capital Merchant Bank and Managing Director, Allegis Capital; and Phil Bossert, Executive Director & CEO, High Technology Development Corporation -- in a conversation about some new China-focused initiatives. Weinman and Bossert will share their insights about trials, tribulations and critical success factors in working on China projects from Hawaiʻi. Host David Lassner, UH Chief Information Officer, will also lead his guests in discussing which public policy initiatives have been most helpful, and how Hawaiʻi could be more successful in its high tech connections with China.
