E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: EAID ENRG EPET SENV SOCI TRGY KPAO KSCA
SUBJECT: RESPONSE TO ACTION REQUEST: NEW ZEALAND - REQUEST
FOR DEMARCHE ON MINISTERIAL DELEGATIONS TO WASHINGTON
INTERNATIONAL RENEWABLE ENERGY CONFERENCE (WIREC 2008)

REF: SECSTATE 138428

In response to reftel action request, Poloff contacted Eric
Pyle, Director of Environmental and Social Development within
the New Zealand Ministry Of Research, Development and
Technology (MORST). According to Pyle, the GNZ has not yet
determined whether it will be sending a ministerial
delegation to WIREC 2008. The reason is that Prime Minister
Helen Clark is in the process of implementing a cabinet
reshuffle following the resignation of MORST Minister Steve
Maharey, among other reasons. Consequently, the GNZ cannot
at this time select which ministers, if any, will attend
WIREC 2008. However, Pyle assured me that as soon as that
decision is made, he will advise Post. Post will keep OES
advised as well.
