Guam - The Chinese Chamber of Commerce along with the University of Guam held an all-day workshop helping those within the small business community with more networking opportunities and education in obtaining federal business. Among the topics discussed today were learning to leverage value-added networks of partners under the Pacific Business Partnership initiative and Guam's future in federal procurement opportunities.

Assistant Secretary of the Department of Interior Office of Insular Affairs Tony Babauta spoke about bringing in other resources to help businesses grow along with building bridges with each other. He said, "Because I think what we find both with businesses and non-profit organizations, which is a focus for us for economic development but also for non-profits and the work that they do, to try and bring those organizations together. Because they're both going to end up relying on each other because they both want to move the community forward in different aspects."  

After receiving overwhelming support from interested businesses, similar workshops are being planned for the future.
