While our state’s thriving industries are as diverse as the offerings of the islands themselves, the Hawaiian word ʻohana, or family, represents the common thread that connects us all and makes this state so uniquely its own. Strong ties among families and communities are a hallmark of life and work here.
Our beaches — and the outdoors as a whole — are foundational to our identity. Tourism plays an essential role in our economy, as do the military, professional services, law firms, real estate, healthcare, manufacturing and nonprofit organizations. These industries, and the unique local businesses that are cultural staples of the islands, help make Hawaiʻi the place we call home. We take tremendous pride in supporting them and seeing them thrive.
