It is always a pleasure to meet with U.S. representatives to further strengthen relations shared by our nations”, stated President Remengesau. “Palau and the U.S. continue to work closely to explore ways for cooperation on matters of mutual interests, such as was discussed during the previously held Joint Committee Meeting in Hawaii on October 2017.”
Lt. Col. Hoyman and his team expressed their commitment to continue to provide technical expertise and assistance to Palau where possible and hopes to work with Palau again on future infrastructural projects.
