1. (SBU) Post appreciates the opportunity to review
the Department of Labor's draft update to its list
of products that have been "mined, produced or
manufactured using forced or indentured child labor"
pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13126 (Ref A).
Post concurs with the list and has no additions or
deletions to recommend.

caveats expressed in Ref B and previous and request
that these concerns be incorporated in E.O. 13126
process documentation as appropriate.
