Lingle to travel to China to hawk Hawaii tourism

Gov. Linda Lingle will fly to China on Friday for a two-week excursion to sell Hawaii as a tourism destination and to bolster opportunities for the state's products to be sold there.
During the six-city trip, she will meet with officials from Hainan Airlines, which recently won approval for at least one weekly flight from Beijing to Hawaii.
In addition, the governor will hold talks with Chinese tourism authorities about promoting Hawaii as a tourist destination, and with U.S. Ambassador Jon Huntsman on speeding up the visa process.
Lingle also will meet with Chinese energy officials on clean energy issues.
