Guam Governor to visit Taiwan

9:49 pm on 12 May 2009

Guam Governor Felix Camacho is leading a 15 member delegation to Taiwan on what his office is calling an "official state visit" to discuss investment opportunities.

The Pacific Daily News says the group will be in Taiwan for four days and will meet with government and business representatives to discuss the anticipated military build up, the modernization of the port and other upcoming investment opportunities on the island.

Many of the expenses of the visit are being met by Taiwan according to Shawn Gumataotao, the governor's deputy chief of staff.

Similar investment trips to the Philippines and New Zealand are being planned for later this year.
