-As for the buildup, despite the 6-year delay many in Guam believe recent developments provide more certainty that the buildup will happen.

-Guam, meanwhile continues to enjoy another year of low inflation with little threat of increase in the near future.

-And finally according to the report, the real estate market is still moving along at a slow pace but is expected to pick up when the military buildup commences.
