Don’t Miss the TropLinks Trade Mission to Guam – July 2011

July 1st, 2011

TropLinks will be holding our next trade mission to Guam in July. This follows a very successful mission in April, where 12 delegates from 10 organisations across various industries, participated in a range of engagement activities with Guam industry and Government organisations and businesses.

The mission will be dual stream, with dates as follows:
Stream 1: 22 – 31 July 2011 (dates are flexible to suit your needs)

This stream will cater for delegates wishing to incorporate the Pacific Power Association Conference, which runs from 25 – 28 July, into the mission. (Conference fees are not included in the mission fee).
Stream 2: 26 – 31 July 2011

This stream will assist delegates not attending the conference, on other commercial areas.

The purpose of the mission is to showcase Tropical Expertise, build partnerships and explore opportunities being brought about by the military build-up.

The spark for much of the interest in Guam, is the impending military build-up (projected cost: over $10bn), though most of the opportunities for Australian companies are in the civilian, non-military areas. Guam will become one of the brightest places in the US to do business with high growth prospects and a business friendly government in place.

Cost: $1,990 members (inc. GST)
$2,190 non-members (inc. GST)
