SUBJECT: RUSSIA: INVITATION TO TELECOMMUNICATIONS EXPO

1. On April 24 Yekaterina Slizkova, Deputy Chief of the Section for
International Cooperation of the Ministry for Information
Technologies and Communications (MinInformSvyazi), extended an
invitation from Minister Leonid Reyman to Commerce Secretary
Gutierrez to attend the October 25-27 InfoCom telecommunications
conference in Moscow. During a meeting with FCS and EST officers,
Slizkova said Reyman will send a letter by the end of May containing
the invitation and describing a proposed roundtable of
telecommunication companies and officials. She provided a list of 17
Russian agencies and companies suggested for the roundtable, which
will be separately transmitted to the Department of Commerce.

2. Slizkova also proposed the creation of a Russian-American
working group on telecommunications. The Ministry suggested the
working group be chaired by a deputy minister or equivalent and meet
semi-annually in various Russian or American cities.

3. Slizkova asked that the USG encourage American companies to
consider participation in the newly created technoparks. She
promised to send information on the federal and regional funding for
such technoparks, their structure and operations.
