SUBJECT: TIER 2 WATCH LIST PLAN FOR GUATEMALA

REF: STATE 154857



1. On July 16, Charge met with Vice Foreign Minister Marta
Altolaguirre to discuss progress in fighting trafficking in
persons, and what Guatemala can do to improve its standing on
the Tier 2 Watch List. Charge delivered all the points in
reftel, and Altolaguirre took careful notes of each. Charge
also left a copy of the Watch List Action Plan.
Altolaguirre, who chairs Guatemala's interagency anti-TIP
working group, was receptive to the actions recommended and
noted that they reflected programs the GOG has already begun.
She shared with Charge a matrix of specific actions and
responsibilities among GOG agencies that is the basis of
Guatemala's anti-TIP plan. Altolaguirre assured Charge that
the GOG completely shares our goals and is fully committed to
working with us and other nations to fight TIP. She noted
that lack of resources, especially to care for and protect
victims of TIP, remains a serious constraint for Guatemala.
