Guam - Taking its Hafa Adai Pledge to the next level, the Guam Visitors Bureau officially launched its Hafa Adai Rate. The program encourages Guam residents not just to buy local but to support local businesses who embrace our island's culture, language and are working to improve the Guam product.

GVB general manager Karl Pangelinan explained, saying, "And so as Senator [Brant] McCreadie pointed out, much like the Kamaaina Rate in Hawaii, this is something for, as we try to promote and create the total visitor experience, we also want our locals to join in some of these same experiences, so this is a program that would fit directly into that notion."

The program would provide special discounts or offers exclusive to local residents from participating businesses - all you have to do is show your Guam Driver's License or Guam ID. Thirteen businesses have since signed on as participating partners. The program was launched through a collaboration with GVB and Senator McCreadie and oversight chair Senator Tina Muna Barnes.
