GEDA looks to host first economic symposium

by Krystal Paco

Guam - The Guam Economic Development Authority is looking to host the island's first ever economic symposium next summer. According to GEDA deputy administrator Mana Silva Taijeron, the event could help Guam grow existing industries as well as new ones by attracting thousands of investors and professionals in the field to the island.

She told KUAM News, "I think it's going to be a really good opportunity for us to market a lot of our potential investment properties. Market Guam as a prime investment destination so we're looking at this at around maybe June of next year."

Silva adds GEDA is currently identifying funding as well as plans to put out an RFP for an event planner.

At a recent GEDA board meeting, board chair E.J. Calvo noted that such an event is long overdue and hopes to partner with the Guam Visitors Bureau and the Guam International Airport Authority to host the event.
