Tourism in Hawaii continued to be a major driver for the state’s economic recovery in 2013, surpassing records set the previous year. Visitor spending reached $14.5 billion, an increase of two percent on the previous year. In total, there were 8.2 million visitors, up by 2.6 percent on the 2012 figure, according to preliminary statistics published by the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA).
“While our core US market remained strong, there were significant increases in arrivals and spending from China, Korea, Taiwan, Australia, and New Zealand,” said the HTA.
