Guam – Governor Felix Camacho is attending the Association of Defense Communities Annual Conference in San Francisco where he is slated to discuss “partnerships related to the Guam military buildup.”
The 3 day event is taking place at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco. It starts Tuesday in San Francisco, Wednesday here on Guam.
A release quotes the Governor as saying: “Whether it’s sharing ambulance services, medical supplies or equipment between our local and military hospitals…these partnerships are truly the essence of what it means to be a community. As we commend the partnerships that exist today, our government continues to seek out mutually beneficial relationships with various entities throughout the world.”
Governor Camacho will also be speaking about the formal and informal agreements with military and non-governmental organizations that will help meet the needs of Guam residents.
“Some of our community partnerships are over two decades old while others continue to develop as we speak,” said Governor Camacho, before over 700 attendees, “However, old or new these partnerships are, the true test of each partnership comes during our times of need.”
On Tuesday in San Francisco, Governor Camacho will be meeting with the Federal Regional Council to discuss the Guam Military Buildup program and status of funding efforts to address infrastructure needs.
The Federal Regional Council (FRC) is made up of nineteen separate federal Departments and Agencies representing nearly thirty different program offices in Region IX (Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and the Outer Pacific Islands) working in partnership to better serve the public, with the goal to work in a coordinated manner to make federal programs more effective and efficient in Region IX.
