Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo left island Sunday to attend a mission briefing via Pacific Command in Honolulu, Hawaii. According to the Governor's Office, the mission briefs will focus on the planned Pacific pivot and the military buildup. Calvo is joined by his chief policy advisor Arthur Clark and Buildup Office director Mark Calvo who are set to join other regional leaders including CNMI governor Eloy Inos and Rear Admiral Tilghman Payne. The governor is set to return later this week.
Meanwhile we should note, it was earlier this month when Clark had told KUAM that he had planned on meeting with Hawaii's director of policy Kendra Oishi during a trip in Hawaii this month to discuss reporting templates relative to Compact impact reimbursements requirements and seeking guidance on how to establish a compact impact task force on Guam.
