Goodwill & Trade Mission to the Philippines
Every year the FCCH arranges a trip to the Philippines that helps strengthen the relationship between Hawaii and the originating country of the organization’s area of focus.
Participants of the trip are able to gain a first-hand experience of various places of the Philippines through the warm hospitality of its people, the unique culture of the country dubbed The Pearl of the Orient and explore business opportunities available there. Past guests of our annual trip have included Hawaii State Governors and Mayors of various cities and counties within the Aloha State.
Forum with Hawaii State Legislators
Our annual Legislative Forum provides attendees a unique opportunity to interact with a number of elected officials on a person-to-person and group discussion setting, with the aim to encourage greater civic engagement to tackle many of the important issues that face our state.
Discussions at these events have been fruitful in providing perspective and traction for the government and legislative agendas of attendees and helps the community build the relationship with its elected leaders.
