Guam - Close to two dozen national security experts from the Asia-Pacific Region helped closed out the Guam US Asia Security Alliance roundtable today. The organization better known as GUASA hosted the two-day conference to discuss how to promote peace and prosperity in the Asia Pacific Region.

GUASA member Juan Carlos Benitez said, "We're looking at expanding and evolving the conference the entire idea is to show Guam as a midway, a meeting place of Asian countries and the United States to be able to have extensive conversation on economic and national security issues for the region."

This year's event featured experts from Australia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea and Vietnam. Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo was the keynote speaker for Thursday's roundtable speaking on the importance of Guam and the Marianas to security in the Asia-Pacific Region.
