Wharton to study USVI economy.

The U.S. Interior Department's Insular Affairs Office has inaugurated a new fellowship program to address the pressing economic problems of U.S. territories, reports The Virgin Islands Daily News (June 4, 2003). Six master's in business administration students from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School will spend two weeks in June visiting the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam in an attempt to identify ways to stimulate economic growth in the islands, said David Cohen, deputy assistant secretary for insular affairs. The fellows will present their findings to Interior Secretary Gale Norton and their work will be used by the department to prepare for a territorial investment development conference that Norton plans to host this fall.
