Guam - The Guam Visitor's Bureau believes the Department of Defense is the reason for the delay in securing parole designation for the China/Russia visa waiver program.  To combat the opposition, GVB board chair Bruce Kloppenburg says a group will be head to Washington, DC this weekend to meet with officials like Deputy Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter.

He said, "We are going to point blank ask them what their concerns are security concerns and we are trying to get them to take a neutral position or support our efforts at best."

The group is comprised of members from GHRA, GVB, the Guam Chamber of Commerce, Adelup and the Congresswoman's Office. Kloppenburg told island mayors today that they will continue to promote the 'One Guam' approach.
