START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Island Aviation Services Ltd.(IAS), the domestic airline of
Air Maldives, which is the Republic of Maldives'
international airline, is also responsible for the entire
ground handling at the Male International airport. Mr.
Harris being the Deputy Director in charge of finance and
account of IAS, is responsible for the prepation of the
annual budgets, cash flow forecast, managing accounts and
managing the finance divisions of the domestic stations in
IAS network.
As Mr. Haris has never visited the United States, an
exposure to the MRP on " U.S. Trade Policy and World
Economy" would be of great value to broaden the perspective
towards his field of interest and would be a useful contact
for the mission in the Maldives.
Post confirms that this nomination has "full Country Team
approval."
