For over 50 years, GHRA has served as the liaison and advocate for the tourism industry and its stakeholders with a unified voice.  Acting as a catalyst, GHRA plays a crucial role in ensuring its members stay informed on bills, laws and issues that have an impact on businesses.  GHRA works closely with local and federal government agencies, elected officials, the administration, and media to improve business-community relations and share important information on the business climate and market conditions of the industry.

GHRA has supported various pieces of legislation that affect industry such as the development of the Guam Farmer’s Coop and new facility in Dededo; funding for sports tourism, Tourism Education Council, Guam Museum, Tumon Waste Water Study, Tumon Flooding projects (Phases I-III); Tourism Attraction Fund capital projects and a moratorium on non-tourism related projects; and expanding the Visa Waiver program to include China and Russia.
