Guam - Palau's Alan Seid spoke to the Rotary Club of Guam on Thursday afternoon on the importance of building and maintaining a relationship between the two islands. According to Seid, Palau's economy has bounced back from the depression in 2008.

He announced, "We've increased our tourism to about 15,000 from 85,000 to 105,000, so it's going very well. I'm promoting private development like hotel projects and condominium projects and there's more flights coming to Palau now from Seoul and Japan, so things are really looking up for Palau and the relationship with Guam and hopefully the buildup with the military will bring more consistent tourists."

Seid also spoke on the importance of conservation efforts, especially as the island's main attractions are the rock islands and the reef.
