Preparations continue for the relocation of thousands of U.S. Marines and their dependents to Guam, as KUAM News has confirmed the Lieutenant Governor's Office is spearheading and coordinating plans for a delegation of island leaders to tour Okinawa, Japan. The visit is a result of last month's visit from members from the Okinawan prefecture assembly to the territory.
Lieutenant Governor Kaleo Moylan originally took a trip to Okinawa to learn more about the long-term economic impacts to Guam and how the island can maintain long-term economic viability after the construction boom has come and gone. The delegation heading to Okinawa includes local senators and village mayors.
According Phil Roberto, spokesman for Lt. Governor Moylan, a date for the trip yet to be finalized.
