NOMINATING-OFFICER: Ottawa Econ/Bud Locklear
START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Since April 2004 Ms. Qi Wang has served as a Policy Analyst
within the Privy Council Office's Border Task Force, a group
that was created in the wake of 9-11 to provide direct
support to the Canadian Deputy Prime Minister on the U.S.-
Canada Smart Border Declaration and its associated Action
Plan. Ms. Wang works to develop advice and policy and to
coordinate horizontal border initiatives by Canadian
government departments with the view of advancing the
objectives of border security and facilitation.
The Borders Task Force, although small, plays a key role in
the management of the U.S.-Canada relationship along the
border; the Task Force's chief interlocutors in the USG are
at the White House (Homeland Security Council), DHS
Headquarters (Office of the Secretary) and the Embassy.
By increasing the knowledge and sophistication about the
United States among members of the Task Force we will help
ensure that U.S.-Canada relations on the key files of trade
and security benefit from a clear vision and understanding
of American policy, practice and interests.
Through the IVLP, we hope Ms. Wang will gain a more refined
sense of economic, political, security and social issues
facing the U.S.; the workings of the U.S. government; and
the myriad factors that influence U.S. foreign and domestic
policy. It is also her hope that the extended stay in the
U.S. will give her the opportunity to better experience
American culture and regional variations.
While Ms. Wang has had the opportunity to develop contacts
in the Government of the United States as a result of her
position at the Borders Task Force and her work takes her
across the border about once every six weeks, she considers,
and we agree, that she has had fairly limited exposure to
the United States. The business trips to the U.S.:
Washington DC, Detroit, Buffalo have been restricted to a
couple of days for the most part and not particularly
conducive to immersing oneself in American culture or
receiving sophisticated analysis of broad American
interests. In terms of personal travel, she has had the
chance to visit New York and Boston.
We fully expect that Ms. Wang will ascend to positions of
significant importance and influence in the Canadian
government.
