Guam: The new Maldives?

According to Mintel's 2011 analysis, Hong Kong, Macau and South Korea are the most popular international destinations for Chinese travelers.

The United States ranks the highest in the Western hemisphere at fifth overall. Russia leads the pack in Europe, listed 10th overall.

Southeast Asian and South Asian countries dominate the rest of the list.

Nearby tropical islands remain high on Chinese tourists' bucket lists.

Guam is the most likely new hot spot, predicts Wang Xinjun. "Chinese tourists love island getaways; you can tell from their passion for the Maldives," says Wang.

"Guam is a very nice destination, as well as a shopping paradise. During the past Spring Festival, Chinese tourists chartered 10 planes to fly to Guam."

How do coral reefs benefit the economy?

Coral reefs support jobs, tourism, and fisheries
coral reef

When corals lose their color because of stress in their environment, it is called 'coral bleaching.' Often, the coral cannot recover and dies. Warming oceans are the main cause of coral bleaching.

Healthy coral reefs support commercial and subsistence fisheries as well as jobs and businesses through tourism and recreation. Approximately half of all federally managed fisheries depend on coral reefs and related habitats for a portion of their life cycles. The National Marine Fisheries Service estimates the commercial value of U.S. fisheries from coral reefs is over $100 million.

Local economies also receive billions of dollars from visitors to reefs through diving tours, recreational fishing trips, hotels, restaurants, and other businesses based near reef ecosystems.

Despite their great economic and recreational value, coral reefs are severely threatened by pollution, disease, and habitat destruction. Once coral reefs are damaged, they are less able to support the many creatures that inhabit them. When a coral reef supports fewer fish, plants, and animals, it also loses value as a tourist destination.

Mr. Henry Norman, ETG hopes Government and Yap State Legislature pass a law to protect these marine resources, no capturing, no trading, no eating,no cooking of sharks, Manta Rays, whales, turtles, dolphins, and others etc. ETG knows and supports Micronesia to protect these marine resources. You mentioned about the consumption of shark fins in Guangdong that is no any relation with ETG. Your purpose of your post is try to link every negative things in China with ETG. You have been trying to educate people of Yap that China , Chinese are bad, so ETG is also Bad too. What you are doing is dafaming ETG.

ETG Yap sincerely appreciates for the web-site www.etg-yap.com designed by Mr. Dieter Kudler for ETG without ETG's permit, although this website has not been completed and can not be opened. Thanks for his initiative.

We would like to answer these five question asked by Mr. Clement Yow Mulalap posted on Facebook Yap’s Development Group on November 2, 2012. Sorry for my late reply and please forgive my poor English.

1) ETG confirms that ETG received a letter dated on September 17, 2012 signed by three “Paramount Chiefs”: Mr. Aloysius Faimau, Mr. John B. Ranganbay and Mr. William Yad. ETG also received another letter dated on September 21, 2012 signed by other three “Paramount Chiefs”: Mr. Francis Fithingmow, Mr. Steven Mar and Mr. Victor Nabeyan. Due to our limited knowledge on the traditional leadership of Yap, we are confused by these 2 letters from very different Paramount Chiefs. We are paying close attention to the follow up actions of the 3 Paramount municipalities after these 2 letters. Mr. Mulalap who are the real paramount chiefs? Please advise.

2) ETG also confirms ETG has received the letter from Governor Anefal on October 2, 2012 in the Governor’s office. So far, ETG’s head office has not sent the response to us. ETG working team sent letters to Concerned Citizen Group (CCG) and Yap Awareness Group on October 31, 2012 for the meetings respectively with the two groups. ETG would like to listen to different voices and opinions of people of Yap. We believes these meetings will be helpful for ETG to make a right decision.

3). ETG working team would like to meet representatives of Concerned Citizen Group and Yap Awareness Group in our office. Whether the meetings should be live broadcasted or not should be decided by these two groups, not ETG, because ETG can’t ask for Government’s resource for ETG’s business. ETG is open to live broadcast for our meetings with both groups, we think it is a very good way to exchange ideas and information.

(4) Regarding the master plan, ETG does not have master plan yet, what we have now is only a conceptual proposal. ETG will only lease land from the land owners who are willing to lease to us based on their free will. ETG will have master plan based on the actual land secured. In your question, you assume ETG has at least some concrete idea, because ETG is looking at constructing 1 or 2 golf course(s). For your information, ETG HOPES to build 1 or 2 golf course(s), but that does not mean ETG has concrete plan and can realize it. Proposals and concrete plan are two very different things. What ETG wants or hopes to build has been listed on the ETG’s summary proposal and the booklet. Please check. Whether ETG really can build, it is totally based on the land availability and other factors. Just like you want to buy some onions from Blue Lagoon or YCA, but maybe the stores have run out of stocks, so at the end, you may not be able to buy it although you want to. Do you agree?

(5) Regarding the disclosure of land leasing agreement signed between ETG and landowner, you should have a better idea than us, because you are a lawyer. The land lease agreement signed between two parties. We think it can be disclosed if two parties should all agree to disclose. We will consult with our lawyers about this issue.
Land lease agreement IS a confidential document for both lessor and lessee. ETG will just share the draft agreement with those landowners who are planning to lease their lands to us. Landowners have freedom to show it to those people they trust and want to seek opinions, advice and help from. ETG doesn’t see the necessity to disclose this confidential document of a private business from ETG side to any other irrelevant third party on internet.

Regarding your mentioned the open communication and transparency, ETG Yap would like to state its position here.
(1) ETG Yap is very open and transparent. ETG would like communicate with people of Yap through all channels such as phone calls ( Mr. Yang Gang :952 2975, Mr. Frank Li :952 3909, Office: 3505888), or visiting our office (Y.P.D.R 2nd floor), posting comments and questions on page: Yap ETG Paradise Lands International Investment Group Inc or Yang Gang. The above information, ETG has posted many times and printed on our booklets. ETG Yap has not received any phones calls, or visitors.

(2) ETG Yap does not think it is not transparent, just because only two persons are not invited to post their comments on Yap ETG Paradise Islands page. From the beginning, ETG Yap did not block them to post their comments, but ETG Yap found their comments are not constructive, and are not based on facts, or not related to the project. ETG Yap decided they were not invited to post their comments on the page, but they still can read. ETG Yap Paradise Islands page is not the place for rumors and libel. People of Yap need to receive the direct information from ETG Yap. They should not be disturbed. This is the right of ETG Yap. This is why there is the function of block for facebook admin.

Mr. Yang Gang also applied for joining the Facebook Yap State Youth Group and Yap’s Development Group for long time. We believe these administrators found him long time ago. He was just allowed to enter Yap’s Development Group four days ago and Yap State Youth Group two days ago. How do you think of this?

ETG Yap’s page is used to increase the awareness of ETG’s proposed project to people of Yap and answer any valid question on internet. We welcome any constructive opinions, suggestions or even criticism which is meaningful, especially from people of Yap, BUT, we don’t like irresponsible and irrelevant people to use our page as a platform to spread rumors and post irrelevant information not yet proved to be true.
(3) Posting the comments on Yap ETG page is not the only way of communication. Mr. Norman and Mr. Rock still can post on Yap State Youth Group and Yap’s Development Group. We appreciate for all constructive comments and all project related questions.
Sorry for my poor English put above, and sorry again for the late reply.

ETG would like to clarify the rumor on the land lease. Some people spreaded rumor that ETG will take over the whole Yap Islands and force Yapese to move out their traditional vilage.

1. According to the law, ETG only can lease land from landowners, and can not own the land. The land owners lease land to ETG for the project, and they still keep the land title and ownship.

2. ETG does not and can not force landowner to lease their land to ETG's project, that is based on the freewill of the landowner. Landowners make their own decision for their land.

3. ETG does not and can not force landowners or village people to relocate or move out from their village.

4. More than 80% of land in Yap Islands are not surveyed, and ETG only leases surveyed land with land certificate issue by Land Resouce Department of Yap Government, so How ETG can" take over" the whole islands?

5. Not all landowners will lease their survyed land to ETG, so How ETG can" take over " the whole islands?

Tourism in China - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourism_in_China
Tourism in China has greatly expanded over the last few decades since the beginning of reform and opening. The emergence of a newly rich middle class and an easing of restrictions on movement by the Chinese authorities are both fueling this travel boom. China has become one of the world's most-watched and hottest inbound and outbound tourist markets. The world is on the cusp of a sustained Chinese tourism boom.[1]

China is the third most visited country in the world. The number of overseas tourists was 55.98 million in 2010.[2] Foreign exchange income was 45.8 billion U.S. dollars, the world's fourth largest in 2010. The number of domestic tourist visits totaled 1.61 billion, with a total income of 777.1 billion yuan.[1]

According to the WTO, in 2020, China will become the largest tourist country and among the largest for overseas travel. In terms of total outbound travel spending, China is expected to be the fastest growing in the world from 2006 to 2015, jumping into the number two slot for total travel spending by 2015.[1]

China's tourism revenue reached $185 billion in 2009.[3]

Some people have been spreading that ETG has a "secret plan" to exploit precious minerals potentially available underneath the sea within Yap's water area. We would like to clarify now: this is simply a rumor, we believe that Yapese people will not take this rumor seriously. As a tourism business operator, we know mining activity will bring huge negative impact to the environment of Yap, which is no good for tourism business. ETG is on the same boat with people of Yap on environmental protection issue. First of all, ETG has NO interest NOR plan to go into mining business in Yap, a new business sector which ETG Group has never touched anywhere before; Furthermore, ETG sees potential mining activity in Yap as a major threat to all major 3 pillar industries of Yap: tourism, fishery and agriculture, especially tourism which ETG is planning to invest in. ETG, like other tourism operators in Yap and all Yapese people, is very concerned about the negative environmental impact of mining activity too.

31/10/2012

On October 31, ETG working team in Yap State sent letters respectively to Concerned Citizen Group and Yap Awareness Project Group for meetings.

We would like to post the correction notice from YapStateGov.org on our page as follows:

Quote:
---------------------------------------------------
Correction to News Brief Article on October 17th, 2012:
US Ambassador Concludes State Visit

This is in correction to our report on the courtesy visit with the Traditional Councils of Pilung and Tamol on October 15, by HE Ambassador Doria Rosen of the US Embassy which was over emphasized.

• The Ambassador was misquoted. We regret any misunderstanding.
• The US welcomes FSM efforts to attract legitimate investors, foreign and domestic, and encourages the FSM to reform its macroeconomic regimes to improve its overall business climate.
• As for the proposed investment in Yap, the U.S. is not opposed to legitimate investors and investments that would provide long-term benefits to the people of Yap. Investment proposals should be open and transparent.

We sincerely apologize for the error.
---------------------------------------------------
Unquote.

Yap ETG Paradise Islands International Investment Group Inc. is a legitimate investor from China, established in Yap strictly according to the Yap State Laws and FSM Laws. ETG believes that our proposed tourism investment project in Yap WILL be a win-win project for both Yap/FSM and ETG, which will bring long term and sustainable benefits to the people of Yap/FSM and also help to tackle serious economic challenges Yap is facing. Otherwise, ETG will NOT take huge risk to invest a large amount of own capital in Yap for something NOT sustainable.

We are available to have open and transparent communication with any people of Yap about our proposed project and ETG Group.
