Management Program. He looked forward to arranging for a one

people from FCMP who would be attending so that he could make
the necessary arrangements.

to keep her informed and said she would coordinate directly
with Ramniceanu to see if MFA's participation in this meeting
was necessary. From her perspective, 20-21 September was also
a good time to conduct the meeting to discuss a one-day
seminar. Poloff promised to keep her informed regarding the
progress of the meeting and the seminar.
