SUBJECT: INVITATION FOR SECRETARY RICE TO ATTEND APRIL
10-11 MIGRATION FORUM IN ECUADOR

REF: ENANO-ADAMS E-MAILS OF JANUARY 23

Spanish Ibero-American summit organizers have asked the
Embassy to share an invitation to the Secretary on behalf of
former long-time Inter-American Development Bank President
Enrique V. Iglesias. Iglesias is based in Madrid as General
Secretary of the Ibero-American General Secretariat (SEGIB).

SIPDIS
His organization is sponsoring the Ibero-American Forum on
Migration and Development (FIBEMYD) that will take place in
Cuenca, Ecuador, on April 10 and 11 with the support of the
International Organization for Migration. In a letter dated
January 9 and shared electronically by Post with the Bureau
of Western Hemisphere Affairs, Iglesias invites the Secretary
to participate in this first meeting "given the key role that
the United States plays . . . (as) the main country of
destination for Latin-American migration." SEGIB is inviting
other government officials, executive heads of international
organizations, experts, and civil society representatives to
take part. Post will forward hard copy of the invitation
package, including the FIBEYMD's concept document and a
letter from the mayor of Cuenca, to the attention of WHA/PPC
for appropriate handling within the Department. Iglesias
plans to share additional material and a provisional agenda
for the two-day forum at a later stage, and requests the
Secretary accept his invitation at her earliest convenience.
