Businesses across Hawaii are being asked to participate in a statewide survey designed to identify what businesses will continue to need assistance and to help plan for restoring the economy.

The survey is being conducted by Chambers of Commerce across the state and the University of Hawaii Economic Research Organization.

“Accurate data on what businesses are experiencing will allow us to shape our continued response and put resources where they are needed,” Sherry Menor-McNamara, President & CEO of the Chamber of Commerce Hawaii said in a statement.

“The information from this survey will help UHERO analyze the impact of the COVID-19 shutdown on businesses and households statewide, and to better assess our existing projections,” UHERO Executive Director Carl Bonham added.

“This type of geographic and industrially-detailed information is not available from any traditional data source in real time, and it will be invaluable to our ongoing work.”
