Hagåtña, Guam (Sept. 7, 2017) — In continued efforts to promote Guam to potential visitors and investors, Governor Calvo recently visited Seoul, South Korea.


“In spite of North Korea’s aggressive postures, we have to work hard to promote our island to visitors and investors. We should also show our solidarity with our South Korean neighbors as partners and guests,” Governor Calvo stated.
