Guam - It was earlier this year the University of Guam released findings of its survey on "Factors for Attracting Guam Residents to Downtown Hagatna" that showed residents weren't frequenting our island's capital because there was little to do. Keeping with the theme, UOG presented their Hagatna Revitalization and Heritage Tourism Plan this afternoon at the Agana Shopping Center.
UOG School of Business dean Dr. Anita Borja Enriquez says we can capitalize on individual villages and the products they produce like the donne, banana, and mango festivals. "We're also looking at sustaining Guam and actually taking a look at each village and coming up with a theme: one village, one product. And recognizing that there are different community assets within each of our villages and different types of production that comes out."
Dr. Enriquez says there's potential in the village of Hagatna as Governor Eddie Calvo has his own plans with hot bonds to revitalize the historic and capital city, which will include the construction of the Guam Museum.
