Guam - Speaker Judi Won Pat in her Weekly Radio Address talked about the recent confirmation hearings that have been held for several nominees to government boards and commissions making special note of testimony from GEDA board nominees expressing their commitment in assisting the development of small businesses and looking into ways to entice more investment opportunity on island as well as looking at markets for Guam's export businesses.

Won Pat said she and the Legislature will work to support the efforts of the island's entrepreneurs and small businesses. Saying, "They are the back bone of our economic prosperity. So many of our local business owners have struggled through bad economic times and have stayed committed to our island community through typhoons and recessions. These local businesses have established exemplary standards of conduct for our island community."
