Hawaii to be
featured on Shanghai television
Pacific Business News June 28, 2004 direct link
Shanghai TV, which sent a documentary film crew to Hawaii earlier this year, has set July air dates for a four-part series on Hawaii, not just as a visitor destination but as a prospective business partner.
Johnson Choi, head of the Hawaii-Hong Kong-China Chamber of Commerce, reports the documentary will reach a large audience, partly because Shanghai is China's largest city with a population of 19 million and partly because there are plans to give the series a broader airing outside Shanghai later.
The episodes are called "Rainbow State," "Surfing in Paradise," "China Connection," and "Ocean Fantasy."
