"China is interested in our companies, and Hawaii Tech Asia showcases what the Hawaii companies are doing and can bring to the Asian market," she added.

With the help of the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks and the HK Biotechnology Organization, CEOs will meet the scientific community. In Beijing, participants will visit the Tsinghua University Science Park (TusPark) and the Life Sciences Park at Zhongguancun in Haidian District, Beijing.
