Mehmet Ridvan Us, Foreign Trade Expert, Undersecretariat for
Foreign Trade
Mesut Ozturk, Regional Director (Mersin), Undersecretariat

2. Because the GOT was invited to send four participants
(vice the five list above), the diplomatic note states, "Ms.
Secil Tireli's travel and accommodation expenses will be
covered by the Turkish government." Please advise
immediately if there is a problem with an extra Turkish
official participating at GOT expense. Embassy supports
allowing the fifth participant to attend in order to
encourage enthusiasm for the topic and GOT interagency
cooperation.
