Guam - Close to six dozen investors from Korea will be paying the island a visit this week. Governor Eddie Calvo tells KUAM News that while Korean visitor arrivals did increase in the last calendar year, he believes the investors may be looking in areas other than tourism.

"But with that, with a dynamic economy such as Korea," said the chief executive, "we're looking toward investment not only in areas such as tourists coming in and tourism services industry but so many others areas where do believe Korean businesses and investors have expertise it's areas on real estate, green technology and many others areas as well."

The governor adds his administration will be courting the close to 70 investors to possibly partner with local businesses in order to build our economy, keep tourism numbers up and create more jobs. Calvo says he will be meeting with the investors from Korea to show them "the best of Guam."
