PALIKIR, Pohnpei (FSM Information Service): June 10, 1997 - On June 4, 1997, President Jacob Nena informed Pohnpei Governor Del Pangelinan that a group from the Growth with equity in Mindanao (GEM), Philippines, headed by the General Consul of the Republic of the Philippines to Guam, Antonio P. Villamor, proposed to visit Pohnpei on June 21, 1997.

The GEM delegation would like to look into investment opportunities, information exchange on fisheries and aquatic resources management and conservation, and other areas of possible mutual cooperation with the different sector of the economy, Nena stated.

In this connection, the delegation requests meetings with Lt. Governor Dion G. Neth, Director of Resource Management and Conservation David Panuelo and the General Manager of Pohnpei Fisheries Corporation, James Movick.

Because the National Government needs to reply to the request, President Nena asked the Governor to reply at his earliest opportunity.
