Guam needs investment beyond build-up

Guam’s Governor is eager to attract foreign investors beyond those involved in the anticipated U.S. military buildup on the island reports the Marianas Variety.

The Governor’s economic advisor,  Henry Taitano says Japanese companies have shown interest in investing in Guam, and that there are many potential partnerships they could explore with local businesses and government entities.

Taitano identifies as one example, University of Guam programs that can potentially grow to become sustainable industries for Guam, including the UOG shrimp farm and the studies being done at the university’s Marine Lab.

Governor Eddie Baza Calvo has just returned from an economic trade mission to Japan. His next economic trade mission will focus on China.
