Guam - It was in late summer when deputy secretary of defense Robert Work paid the island a visit and according to island leaders, the Department of Defense's number two guy continues to be a champion for us here at home. According to Governor Eddie Calvo, work indicated that Guam may receive some good news on the china visa waiver by Christmas.

"The administration is in full support of more flexibility in regards to allowing Chinese tourists not only into Guam but into the United States so we anticipate before the end of the year some very good news coming from President Obama so the deputy secretary of defense was sharing that information with me as well as again some issues in regards to the military realignment, and things are still moving accordingly," he said.

Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo meanwhile also spoke with work this week regarding the China Visa Waiver. In a release, she says secretary work provided her with an update on his efforts to address the issue following his visit in August adding they continue to work to find to find ways to provide visa-free travel for Chinese visitors.
