Guam - It's an opportunity for local vendors and small businesses to tap into the global market and come this weekend, the Guam Economic Development Authority will host its 3rd Annual Guam Export Trade Symposium better known as "GETS 2014".

Deputy administrator Mana Silva Taijeron said, "This has been very successful in giving our small businesses an opportunity meet buyers and link up with buyers on Guam and throughout Asia and showcase some of their products they have here, not just products but products and services."

The symposium is part of a presidential initiative called the "State Trade and Export Program" offering grant funding to support small businesses in an effort to expand their exportable goods. Over two dozen vendors are set to participate in the symposium. The event is scheduled for Saturday from 10 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon on the second floor of the Agana Shopping Center across Express Care. Admission is free.
