GOV. Eddie Calvo is going to meet with Okinawa officials this week.
According to Troy Torres, the governor’s communications director, Calvo will also meet with Okinawa business executives to attract Okinawan investments to Guam.
“We’ll be following up with businesses that are already making plans to open up shop on our shores ... and we’ll be pursuing new partnerships to help diversify the industrial and economic landscape of your island,” Calvo stated in an earlier address.
Calvo is also scheduled to meet with Okinawa Gov. Hirokazu Nakaima and visit troops stationed in the southern Japanese prefecture.
Calvo returns to Guam at the end of the week.
Last month, Calvo traveled to Taiwan with a team for an investor seminar highlighting opportunities on Guam.
“Guam is America in Asia – a hub of potential that can be so much more than a strategic defense point in the Pacific. We want to bring more opportunities for you and your families. We want a diverse workforce – a thriving community of people with vast backgrounds, skills, and the expertise to build and sustain this island from within,” Calvo said.
