Guam - Along with Department of the Interior Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Insular Affairs Tony Babauta, governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands John de Jongh, Jr. is on Guam. He came here upon the invitation of Babauta, Governor Eddie Calvo and University of Guam president Dr. Robert Underwood.

"I decided to take the opportunity because there's a tremendous amount of similarities and Guam and the Virgin Islands and I decided to come here and learn for myself," said de Jongh. Some of what they are but at the same time talk to them about their energy and their energy task force and what they're doing in that area."

Governor de Jongh will be speaking at UOG this Thursday as part of Underwood's presidential lecture series on the topic of "Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and America's Territories - Unique Challenges Shared Successes".  Babauta meanwhile will speak at UOG tomorrow to present the Initial Guam Energy Assessment Report at 10:30am in the Leon Guerrero School of Business and Public Administration Building.
