noted that the money creates a great deal of contracting op-
portunities for several types of businesses. “We want to make
sure that American firms know about these opportunities so
they can win their fair share,” she emphasized.
    Norton said that the conference would present a number
of possible opportunities for win-win situations for the islands
and the mainland, If, for example, a California-based global
hotel chain expands by building resort hotels in the islands, it
will create jobs in the islands and opportunities for U.S.-based
contractors. The expansion of the business should also create
jobs and prosperity back in California.
