DEPARTMENT, PLEASE PASS DOE FOR TILLER AND USAID FOR ICHORD

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: ECIN ENIV KPAO PREL SENV TU
SUBJECT: BSEC EXCUTIVE CALLS U.S. PROJECT AN EXEMPLAR,
SUPPORTS SECOND PHASE

(SBU) Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) Assistant to the
Secretary General Kostas Zaimis warmly received a copy of the
executive summary of USAID and USEA Regional Model
Development and Network Analysis Report. On June 24 at a BSEC
ad hoc working group on electrical networks (AHWGEEN) Zaimis
thanked the U.S. along with USAID and USEA for their
sponsorship of the Black Sea Regional Transmission Planning
Project. He stated it was an exemplar of what BSEC should be
doing; engaging in a long term project over many BSEC
countries with support from an observer nation. Gul Okan from
the Turkish Electricity Transmission Company and Dan Preotesu
from the Romanian Transelectrica Company made presentations
of the project to working group attendees.

(SBU) Zaimis called the second phase of this project a
"wonderful opportunity" to conduct the type of project that
BSEC should do. BSEC representatives supported Zaimis
statement, with the condition that no BSEC counties should be
left out of the project; Albania and Serbia are not included
in the initial project area. Black Sea Trade and Development
Bank (BSTDB) Director Orhan Aytemiz was eager to provide
financing to implement the report's recommendations. Aytemiz
also wanted to work with USAID on the second phase of the
project.
