TAGS: EFIS SENV AORC ETRD FAO MO AG RP
SUBJECT: Philippine Response to New Port States Agreement

REF: STATE 41661

¶1. EconOff delivered reftel points to Philippine Department of
Foreign Affairs Director Maria Lourdes Salcedo on April 29. Salcedo
was receptive to the U.S. position of forging a stand-alone
agreement to combat illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing,
and sent an urgent fax to the Philippine Agricultural Attache in
Rome. She commented that she would need to consult with the Bureau
of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, also. Both Salcedo and EconOff
called and emailed the Bureau Director several times, and neither
have received a response, as yet. Salcedo sent a second fax to
Rome, but has not yet received feedback from the Attache. Salcedo
promised to inform EconOff if she hears from either the Attache or
Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Director.
