The Office of Economic Development (OED)

OED works in partnership with the community, business and government sectors to strengthen and diversify the economy by supporting existing businesses. We also assist in the attraction, development, and expansion of new businesses and events that will, in turn, provide new jobs for our community. Our goal is to promote and nurture sustainable economic development within Maui County consistent with the community’s needs and priorities.
