1. (U) Per reftel request, Post has proposed and confirmed
that a "U.S.-Thailand Legal Technical Forum" will be held
under the auspices of the Export Control and Related Border
Assistance (EXBS) program, in Bangkok in mid-May. Post
expects 20-30 Thai participants at the workshop, including
participants from the Thai Department of Commerce (DOC), the
Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Thai Ministry of
Defense, as well as the Australian Embassy. The final dates
of the conference have not yet been confirmed as the Thai DOC
has expressed a preference to hold the conference over three
days (May 18-20), rather than the four days proposed in
Reftel. FCS-Bangkok is also exploring the possibility of an
additional day for private-sector "outreach". Post POC:
