In her briefing, Bordallo said "much of the press focus has been on the military realignments in the region but it’s important to note that this re-focus is broader than just military realignments. It is an opportunity for our country to engage more economically and remain a leader in this region."
In addition the Congresswoman highlighted Guam's geographic position as a gateway for the U.S. to Asia saying "Guam contributes significantly to cultural ties with America’s friends in the Asia-Pacific region. We have opportunities to enhance economic development, particularly through tourism, and I believe we can do more with alternative energy on Guam and use those experiences to showcase American leadership on these issues in the Pacific."
