SUBJECT: UPDATED SENEGALESE ATTENDANCE AT THE AGOA FORUM

REF: A. DAKAR 1113
B. STATE 058394
C. DAKAR 1054

1. On July 11, Senegal's Senior Minister of Foreign Affairs, Cheikh
Tidiane Gadio, told the Ambassador that he will now lead Senegal's
official delegation to the AGOA Forum. Gadio would welcome a
bilateral meeting with Secretary Rice. We do not expect recently
appointed Minister of Commerce Amadou Habibou Ndiaye or other
Senegalese ministers to attend this year's Forum, but that could
still change in the coming week. The MOC's Director of External
Trade, Cheikh Saadbou Seck, is already in Accra and can help
coordinate meetings with GOS officials.

2. In addition to Seck, we still expect the other GOS official
noted in Ref A to attend: Ms. Maimouna Savane, Director General of
the Senegalese Agency for Export Promotion (ASEPEX); Mr. Omar Samb,
Director General of Agency for the Promotion and Development of
Handicraft(APDA); and Mr. Moctar Diakhate, Director of Artisanry.
