Guam - Taiwan President Ma Ying Jeaou stopped on island today and was met by the Governor Felix Camacho, First Lady Joann Camacho and Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo at the A.B. Won Pat International Airport. The meeting lasted about 25 minutes and spanned many issues about mutual exchange opportunities between Taiwan and Guam as well as possible future visits and opportunities for cultural exchange.
Taiwan is one of largest economies in the world with a foreign exchange reserve of US$293 billion, leaving tremendous opportunities for investment. Discussions also focused on mutual investments and cooperation in many high-tech areas.
President Ma also met with the AIT chairman based in Washington, DC for about 10 minutes and State Department officials were also present. This is the second visit on island for President Ma who previously visited Guam as a student at Harvard 35 years ago.
The president did express his interest and eagerness to return to Guam in the future and appreciated the very warm welcome he received. President Ma is now heading to Palau.
He visited six countries in the last six days.
