Guam - The Guam Economic Development Authority is moving forward with enhancing its qualifying certificate program. As we reported earlier this year, the GEDA board voted to move forward with the "new look" that would add a special QC for specific and urgent investment incentives starting with hotel room development. GEDA's business development manager Tina Garcia says they are working with Horwath HTL Consulting Group based out of Singapore. HTL stands from hotel tourism and leisure study. She says Horwath's study will involve comparing Guam to its major markets and Asian locations. Hotel development is in line with the Guam Visitors Bureau's 20/20 vision who we should add is also sharing the costs for the $50,000 study. Once the study is completed, a draft of the new QC program should be available possibly by the GEDA's next board meeting in August.
