NOMINATING-OFFICER: John Berry; Information Officer
START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Mr. Ashraf Amin has been well known to the PA-Cairo for
long years. He has cooperated to publish Washington File
scientific stories, in particular, out of personal
interest, especially U.S. scientific, technological,
environmental and medical developments and discoveries. He
also published several stories about different U.S. Embassy
cultural functions, the most recent of which was "Circus
Guy" due to its connection with science and environment.
Ashraf's reputation as a diligent contributor to leading
pro-government "Al Ahram" newspaper led to his recent
promotion to be the head of its Scientific Section.
Despite his long cooperation with the U.S. Embassy PA
Section, he has never been to the U.S. An IV program in
the U.S. will be an ideal first-hand opportunity to boost
his knowledge of the U.S., especially scientific
developments, which would reflect on his work upon return.
