SUBJECT: TRANSPORT MINISTER WILL NOT ATTEND WHTI MEETING

REF: A) LIMA 3146 B) SECSTATE 132219



1. (U) Per reftel B, we have ascertained that Minister of
Transportation and Communications Jose Ortiz will not/not
attend the Western Hemisphere Transportation Initiative
(WHTI) in Brazil, August 25-26. Vice Minister of
Transportation Nestor Palacios will act as the GOP's lead
delegate.



2. (SBU) Vice Minister Nestor Palacios is interested
in a bilateral meeting with the U.S. delegation.
Potential topics include support for the development of
transportation infrastructure and transport logistics.
The USG currently does not have any DOT funded projects
in Peru, and we expect that the GOP would solicit
financial support for upcoming projects. In the case
that a bilateral meeting does occur, please note that
Vice Minister Palacios does not speak English.
