Guam - Seven more companies have added their names to the growing list of companies taking the Hafa Adai Pledge, committing to use the local greeting as part of the Guam Visitor's Bureau's local island branding initiative.  GVB Deputy General Manager Ernie Galito says the pledge is part of an effort to expand Guam into more than just a beach destination but into a cultural destination, as well.

"Not everybody at this table has customer-facing daily practices with our visitors, but the whole idea is that tourism doesn't belong to the hotels, it doesn't belong to the airlines. It belongs to the people of Guam," Galito explained.

The companies that signed on today are Agana Shopping Center, Galaide Group, GCC Tourism Academy, Kloppenburg Enterprises, Money Resources, Payless Supermarkets, and Ruder Integrated Marketing Strategies.
