Guam should care about APEC: Babauta

Guam had an indirect presence at this week’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Hawaii.

Guam son and assistant secretary of the Interior Department’s Insular Affairs office, Tony Babauta was part of APEC meetings that discussed a possible multinational tuna treaty and global warming.

The Guam PDN reports Babauta as saying the U.S. government is refocusing efforts on a comprehensive effort toward economic growth among the Pacific islands.

“Guam should care about the APEC, especially this one,” Babauta says.

In the Pacific, Babauta says, “we hope to encourage more economic development and more capacity-building.”
