START MEMO NOM-POST-OBJ:
Vivet plays a role now in U.S.-EU aviation issues, which is
part of Embassy Paris' MPP objectives related to economic
prosperity and security. Successful air transport
negotiations with the EU will ensure continued and expanded
market access for U.S. air carriers.
In addition, Embassy Paris' MPP paper on Response to Terrorism
outlines the objectives of protecting U.S. citizens in part
through TSA and FAA's role in civil aviation security and
safety. As Vivet rises through the ranks at the French civil
aviation authority, he will manage each of these issues and
deal directly with bilateral aviation safety and security
issues.
END MEMO NOM-POST-OBJ:
START MEMO NOM-POST-RCMD:
Vivet would need to make the rounds of all the players in U.S.
aviation negotiations, which are led by State with the
participation of the Department of Transportation, Department
of Commerce, airlines and airline associations. He should
meet with Congressional members or staff on committees with
oversight for aviation policy to get a grasp of legislative
input into the process. He would also benefit from visits to,
and a better understanding of, our Federal Aviation
Administration and Transportation Security Administration.
Outside of this narrow focus, Vivet may be interested in
looking at policy changes under discussion in FAA and DOT per
recommendations from the International Civil Aviation
Organization (ICAO) with respect to oversight of Air Traffic
Control. ICAO recommendations have recently led to a
reorganization of Vivet's agency, the General Directorate of
Civil Aviation (DGAC), in France. Learning how major U.S.
airports deal with the challenge of noise abatement may be of
interest to him also. DGAC and the GOF have made the issue a
high priority with mixed results for U.S. companies.
Trade policy officials in the U.S. could provide a forward-
looking view at trade-in-services agreements. American
academics and business executives with a focus on the future
of the air transport industry (legacy carriers vs. low-cost),
or negotiation theory could provide insight into areas he
would want to explore. In addition, a stop at Boeing with the
right officials would be important to show the other side of
the aircraft manufacturing subsidies debate. In a broader
perspective, interaction with State governments for a better
general understanding of federalism would be in order.
On a personal side, Vivet is the skipper of an eight-main
sailing team in national competition and may want to
experience sailing in the U.S. He is also an amateur musician
and supports a handicapped persons association.

NOMINATING-OFFICER: Amy Westling
START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Emmanuel Vivet is a promising civil servant who is smart,
ambitious and clearly destined for broader responsibilities in
French government beyond his current position of civil
aviation negotiator.
As a negotiator, Vivet has represented France in 7 of the 9
negotiating rounds between the European Union and the U.S. on
a US/EU open skies air transport agreement. On internal EU
aviation issues, Vivet drafts positions for the French
Ambassador and his team at France's permanent representation
to the EU in Brussels and has participated in 35 bilateral air
services consultations between France and countries outside
the European Union. In this position he prepares negotiations
by defining the French position in consultation with the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and French airlines. He takes the
floor in negotiations, drafts the MOUs and sends diplomatic
reports.
In my meetings with Vivet, he has demonstrated a mastery of
his aviation brief and the English language that is
impressive. He demonstrates an outlook that is curious and
open to the world while he clearly articulates the logic
behind his government's positions. His superiors have trusted
him with significant responsibility at a relatively young age.
Vivet is exactly the type of bright civil servant that we want
to expose to the complexities of the U.S. policy context. For
the immediate future, an IV experience would give him a better
understanding of the interaction between the executive and
legislative branches and the influence of the private sector
in air services negotiations.
Partly because of fundamental differences between the U.S. and
France on the role of government in society, conventional
wisdom in France often dictates that U.S. policy be described
in simplistic and misguided terms. Even intelligent, well-
educated people sometimes accept such generalizations because
they have no alternative reality to refute them. The IV
program provides the opportunity to present the reality of the
U.S. in all its complexity. Vivet is a prime candidate for
the experience because he is young, competent, open to other
points of view and undoubtedly will rise to a position of
authority in the French government. Now and in the future,
his work needs to be informed by a more realistic picture of
how U.S. government and society work, a view that will
influence his official decisions.
