We're just coming off what's traditionally a busy holiday period for travel in the United States, including in Hawaiʻi. International travel to the state remains relatively low, but there are several recent developments relating to travel in the Asia-Pacific. News Director Bill Dorman, the host of HPR's Asia Minute, spoke to The Conversation about the latest travel news, starting with China.

This interview aired on The Conversation on Jan. 4, 2023. The Conversation airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on HPR-1.
