Hawaii Economic Forecast Update:
Hawaii Expansion to Continue Despite Japanese Weakness

Posted August 8, 2003 | Categories: Forecasts, Hawaii's Economy

Weak Japanese travel continues to be a challenge for the state’s number one industry. For the past threemonths, the Japanese visitormarket has struggled to climb back from the sharp drop that accompanied the war in Iraq and the outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). At the same time, the mainland visitor market has been robust, and increases in lengths of stay have helped to generate modest increases in broad measures of visitor industry activity. Except for areas that are heavily dependent on Japanese tourism, this is shaping up to be a fairly good year for the visitor industry.
