Hawaii hosts Asian
health care meeting

The Tokyo-based Asian Productivity Organization is holding a week-long meeting in Honolulu entitled "Health Care Management for an Aging Society." The seminar ends Friday.

About 150 participants from organization countries and elsewhere will participate in training sessions taught by Hawaii experts in business, education and government.

The delegates will attend presentations by local experts on aging and elderly care and visit local health care facilities.

The state's Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism will also be promoting Hawaii's health care advantages.

The APO is made up of 18 member countries seeking to increase productivity in Asia through cooperation. Its role is to serve as a catalyst for ideas, be a regional advisor and a clearinghouse for productivity information.
