We are an organization founded for the promotion of business and economic growth in Hawaii based upon the principle, “Members Supporting Members.”

The organization provides leadership and programs which promote membership interaction, resulting in growth and the continuation of its legacy.

We continue creating opportunities since 1900 to promote fostering friendships, connecting “B2B” (business-to-business), and mālama ka ‘āina (‘caring for the land’).

Chamber member Dr. Ken Ito was conferred the Imperial Decoration, The Order  of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette, for his contributions to promoting friendship and mutual understanding between Japan and the United States.  He has been actively engaged in sister affiliations and exchange promotion activities between Hawaii and the Japanese Prefectures of Ehime, Niigata and Hokkaido, with the belief that it is important for the long-term relationship between Japan and the United States to expand the circle of exchange at the local level and to build a grassroots cooperative relationship. 

The Imperial Decoration was presented by Consul General Ito.
