Benefit of PE 142

2. (U) Mr. Corkey,s reporting requirements focus primarily
on the extractive industries of the Democratic Republic of
the Congo (DRC). He works with representatives of several
mining companies, including Freeport McMoRan, the largest
private U.S. investment in the DRC. The extractive
industries portfolio of the DRC, a resource-rich but largely
undeveloped country, includes copper, cobalt, diamonds, gold,
cassiterite, petroleum, and timber. The PE 142 course would
benefit the Economic section, as well as the end-users of
Kinshasa reporting, by giving Mr. Corkey a better
understanding of the natural resources sector. The course
would also enable Mr. Corkey to establish useful contacts
within the U.S. Geological Survey and other relevant
U.S.-based organizations.
