TAGS: EAID PGOV PREL EG
SUBJECT: USAID DEMOCRACY AND GOVERNANCE PROGRAMS: THE WAY FORWARD

We agree that the best way forward to determine FY 2008 spending
levels on democracy and governance programs in Egypt is option
three, selected by the April 11 Senior Level Working Group. This
option sets a $48 million floor for spending on democracy and
governance programs. We would also support an assessment to
determine if and how the additional $19 million that is "ring
fenced" can be spent on D&G programs in Egypt. Post warmly invites
representatives from MEPI and DRL to participate in the assessment
that begins May 18.
