1. PolEconOff delivered reftel points to Juris Stalmeisters,
director of the MFA Economic Relations Department and discussed with
other officials from the Ministry of Environment and MFA. There was
no substantive response. As in previous discussions of biofuel

interested in potential biofuel projects in the future, they have
not yet developed a formal position on sustainability.
