Henry K.O. Norman on Facebook Page, Yap’s Developmen

On 2012-10-19 the Yap State Government posted a “brief” (newsletter) on the official web site (Source: http://yapstategov.org/News/10-2012/10-17-12.htm), where in one entry (with the subtitle “US Ambassador Concludes State Visit”) we could read:

“The Councils raised a question concerning an issue being circulated around in the communities that relation between the US and FSM governments could weaken if Yap accepts ETG to bring in its investment. In her respond <sic!>, the Ambassador said the US is not against the Chinese Investment in Yap, in fact Yap has made the right choice to sign the Investment Agreement with ETG.”

As concerned U.S. citizen Dennis Camblin (Hawai’i) found it difficult to believe that this was really what the Ambassador said, he sent a direct inquiry to Ms. Rosen (RosenDM@state.gov). This is what the Ambassador replied (highlight added):

Email Quote:

Dear Mr. Camblin:
Thank you for alerting me to that erroneous quotation regarding the proposed ETG investment in Yap. No, the highlighted statement was NOT what I said.

My message was actually that the U.S. is not opposed to legitimate investors and investments in the FSM that would provide long-term benefits to the FSM population; and that all investments should be open and transparent.

I did not refer specifically to the ETG proposal, but I would hope that any specific investment proposals impacting the people of Yap would be thoroughly reviewed and discussed.
