Guam - The Consul General for India working out of the San Francisco Consulate Office, Susmita Thomas, is on island for what she says was meant to be a courtesy visit as Guam falls under her jurisdiction. Thomas met with Governor Felix Camacho for an hour this morning and discussed the numerous opportunities and potential for developing a partnership between Guam and India as the military buildup gets underway.

"In the discussions that took place this morning we had a very good identification of the potentials for both sides the fact that there was a need for Guam, which is developing rapidly now under a particular scheme coming to force that needs a lot of manpower especially technically qualified English speaking manpower," said Thomas.

Thomas says she has extended an invitation to the governor to go to India with a trade delegation.
