A delegation of 20 businessmen and women from Townsville, Australia are on Guam, spending the week meeting with members of the Guam and Chinese chambers of commerce.  Townsville Mayor Les Tyrell says the group is focused on investment opportunities relating to the impending military buildup and strengthening relationships between Australia and the territory.

He told KUAM News, "There's a lot of construction work not only just for the military forces, but for the other parts of the island as well. We have a delegation of about 20 here from Townsville, who, I believe, will be important in offering solutions whether that be goods and materials or expertise and services."
