Guam - As part of building its relationship with our neighbors in the Philippines, the Guam Chamber of Commerce held a gathering this morning for the Makati Chamber of Commerce and Industry at the Hilton Guam Resort.
According to Makati Chamber president Emelita Alvarez, the visit aimed to not only establish relationships but see what kind of opportunities whether it be in real estate, the medical profession or business could expand on island. "A lot of our investors in the Philippines particularly with real estate are coming from Guam, and I understand that most of the residents here are Filipinos so we would really like to get in touch and be more closer to Guam because we're just a few hours away from us," she said.
The Makati Chamber is a volunteer organization of Makati-based business enterprises. Seven members from the Makati Chamber are on Guam and are expected to leave this weekend.
