SUBJECT: CANADIAN PARTICIPATION AT LIBERIA POVERTY
REDUCTION FORUM JUNE 26-27 IN BERLIN

REF: STATE 62866

(U) On June 17, Econoff delivered points in reftel to Ivan
Roberts, A/Director, Canadian International Development
Agency, Gulf of Guinea Division. Roberts said that Canada
has not had a bilateral aid relationship with Liberia in
recent years. Canada has offered assistance to Liberia
through multilateral platforms, however. Roberts explained
that the GOC is currently reducing the number of its
international assistance programs in order to better focus on
larger more successful programs. In this environment, he
said, it is unlikely that Canada will start an aid program to
Liberia. Roberts said that the Canadian representative at
the Liberia Poverty Reduction Forum in Berlin will likely be
from the Canadian Embassy in Berlin, but the final decision
has not yet been made.
