The return of tourism to West Maui is underway; and while reaction has remained mixed, there were no issues to report on day one.

So what kind of difference will the economy and businesses see and how can the westside continue to move forward?

For the answer to question, KHON2 turned to Pamela Tumpap who is President of the Maui Chamber of Commerce.

She will discuss:

  • Have you been able to talk to businesess about how the first day went?
  • How will this reopening help businesses and the economy?
  • Those who have to rebuild, are there any updates on that or regarding those who need help?
  • With no issues to report, how can the westside continue to move forward and continue to maintain balance following a tragedy?
