SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN POINT OF CONTACT IN NEW ZEALAND
REF: STATE 205022
1. Embassy Wellington's designated point of contact for
the Blue Lantern Program is:
Joy Yamamoto
Economic Officer
Tel: 64-4-462-6182
Fax: 64-4-472-3537
E-mail: yamamotoJO@state.gov

2. Blue Lantern cases are coordinated with the
Embassy's Defense Attache Office.
3. The time frame for past Blue Lantern cases has
ranged from weeks to months, with delays usually
associated with bureaucratic inertia and not with
policy differences.
4. We are not aware of any local conditions that impede
or affect working Blue Lantern cases. Most of these
cases involve government-to-government transfers, with
our main interlocutor being the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs and Trade.
