We Survived APEC

November 16, 2011

This past weekend was the APEC conference which had world leaders from China, Russia, Japan and the US all converging to Hawaii for meetings on ways of improving the world economy as well as other issues like the environment. For people living in Hawaii they were more concerned about the traffic APEC would cause. Due to security reasons the freeways, streets, parks and beaches were closed so it was difficult to get around for some. I will admit the traffic was bad at times but overall this was a win for Hawaii as it showed we could handle large conferences and hopefully more will be coming to Hawaii as well. For those who were interested in how bad the traffic was, here is a video from this past weekend.
