The paper quotes Council Chairman Gilbert Ullrich as saying that the mission was organized for New Zealand companies to explore business investment opportunities in Guam.
"This will also be good for the Fiji companies so they can also explore business opportunities there, especially when the population in Guam is expected to increase by thousands," he said, referring to plans to relocate 8000 US Marines from Okinawa in Japan to Guam.
This move is expected to provide a multi-billion dollar opportunity for skilled workers in the Pacific.
