SUBJECT: ANNUAL REQUEST FOR STAFFING, EMPLOYMENT, AND
BUDGET DATA FOR UNWTO

1. (U) ECON sent fax and left repeated voicemail messages
with Carmen Molina, Director of Human Resources at the UN's
World Tourism Organization, to request the reftel budgetary
and personnel information. After multiple non-responsive
inquiries, ECON is forced to assume that as in prior years
the UNWTO is unwilling to provide information requested since
the US is not a member. In the past, the UNWTO has informed
ECON officers that such personnel information is only
available to members.

2. (U) Separately, ECON conducted an extensive internet
search for the information requested. While no such
information is readily available on the web, ECON was able to
ascertain that the UNWTO HQ in Madrid employs approximately
110 employees, a figure that has not changed from this time
last year.
