Guam - Michael Ghiglione, executive director of the Center for Micronesian Empowerment, spoke during the general membership meeting for the Guam Chamber of Commerce at the Guam Hilton Hotel today. Ghiglione spoke on the "Untapped Potential of the Micronesian Workforce".
With the impending military buildup on Guam, he spoke about steps they're taking to ensure workers in these areas are trained and ready to work. "We believe that people work better under structure. And that's what we provide with these groups for the other islands during their first 90 days here. After that, we monitor their progress in class and in the job," he said.
"I think this is a real win-win situation for Guam and for the entire Micronesian region."
In the meantime, while the Chamber discussed what companies are doing to help the victims in Japan, Japan Consul General Yoshiyuki Kimura thanked all those on island who have graciously donated to help the victims there.
