REF: State 78616 
 
1. (U) Econoff delivered reftel points on June 8 to Damigul 
Kabiyeva, Head of the WTO accession Department, and Saltanat 
Mukasheva, Head of the Section for Trade and Economic Cooperation at 
the Ministry of Industry and Trade.  Kabiyeva expressed a strong 
interest in the details of the program and welcomed the advancement 
of the TIFA framework.  She added that Kazakhstan hopes to continue 
its WTO accession talks on the sidelines of the TIFA meetings. 
Kabiyeva floated the idea of two-day bilateral discussions with 
USTR, starting on July 19. 
 
2. (SBU) Kabiyeva requested guidance on whether a Kazakhstani 
delegation headed by Vice Minister Zhanar Aitzhanova would be 
acceptable and appropriate in view of the U.S. invitation calling 
for delegations headed by a Cabinet-level minister.  While 
mentioning the possibility that Minister of Industry and Trade Galym 
Orazbakov may head the Kazakhstani delegation, Kabiyeva noted that 
Aitzhanova has the status of a "special representative."  Kabiyeva 
also asked whether USAID would be represented at the TIFA meetings, 
given its planned work in fostering regional integration.  Finally, 
she inquired whether U.S. hosts would be providing any logistical 
support to visiting delegations.
