E.O. 11652: N/A


TAGS: OTRA, DR
SUBJECT: REQUEST FOR CONSULTATION ORDERS

1. I SHALL APPRECIATE DEPT'S AUTHORIZATION FOR ONE WEEK'S


CONSULTATION IN WASHINGTON STARTING APRIL 29 TO BE FOLLOWED
BY ONE WEEK IN NEW YORK AND ELSEWHERE IN THE EAST TO CONSULT
WITH U.S. CONCERNS DOING BUSINESS WITH THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC.

2. DURING THE WEEK OF APRIL 29, I WOULD CONSULT WITH APPRO-


PRIATE OFFICERS IN THE DEPT REGARDING DOMINICAN DEVELOPMENTS
AND PERSONNEL QUESTIONS. I HAVE ALSO BEEN REQUESTED TO PAR-
TICIPATE INFORMALLY IN THE MEETING OF THE AMERICAN CHAMBERS OF
http://wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/1974SANTO01455_b.html

COMMERCE OF LATIN AMERICA (ACCLA) WHICH TAKES PLACE IN


WASHINGTON MAY 1 - 3.

3. DURING THE WEEK OF MAY 5, I WOULD CONSULT WITH SENIOR


OFFICIAL OF THE GULF & WESTERN CORPORATION, ROSARIO MINING
COMPANY, CHASE MANHATTAN BANK, FIRST NATIONAL CITY BANK,
UNITED BRANDS, GOLDMAN SACKS, MANUFACTURERS HANOVER, MADISON
SQUARE GARDEN, TEXACO, ESSO, ARCO, COUNCIL OF THE AMERICAS,
THE FORD FOUNDATION, AND ALCOA. I WOULD, OF COURSE, BE
PREPARED TO CONSULT WITH ANY OTHER ENTITIES THE DEPT MAY
SUGGEST, DUE TO THE PRESS OF BUSINESS UPON LEAVING THE DEPT
LAST AUGUST TO ASSUME MY PRESENT RESPONSIBILITIES, I WAS
PREVIOUSLY UNABLE TO MAKE THESE CALLS ON U.S. BUSINESS GROUPS. I
THINK I SHOULD DO SO BEFORE TOO MUCH MORE TIME ELAPSES.

4. THERE ARE TWO OTHER TIMING CONSIDERATIONS: (A) I WOULD


LIKE TO BE AWAY FROM THE DOM REP FOR A SIGNIFICANT PORTION
OF THE MONTH REMAINING BEFORE ELECTIONS TO RE-INFORCE MY PUBLIC
STATEMENT HERE THAT THE USG HAS A NON-INTERVENTIONIST, NEUTRAL
POSTURE TOWARD THE ELECTIONS; AND (B) THE TRANSFER OF VIRTUALLY
ALL OF THE SENIOR EMBASSY STAFF THIS SUMMER MAKES IT UNLIKELY
THAT I SHALL HAVE A SIMILAR OPPORTUNITY FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

5. SHOULD THE DEPT AGREE, I WOULD ASK THAT FIRM APPOINTMENTS


BE SOUGHT NOW WITH THE FOLLOWING: LARRY LEVINSON, VICE PRESIDENT
OF GULF AND WESTERN WITH WHOM I HAVE TENTATIVELY AGREED TO SPEND
ONE-HALF A DAY; ROBERT M, REININGER, PRESIDENT OF ROSARIO
MINING COMPNAY; MCGEORGE BUNDY, PRESIDENT, FORD FOUNDATION;
ELI BLACK,BOARD CHAIRMAN, UNITED BRANDS (NEW 694(); JOHN HARPER,
CHAIRMAN ALCOA (PITTSBURGH); JAMES GREENE OF HANOVER TRUST; IRVING
FELT, BOARD CHAIRMAN, MADISON SQUARE GARDEN; WITH RESPECT TO
THE OTHERS, I WOULD MEET WITH ANY SENIOR EXECUTIVE AVAILABLE
(APPOINTMENT WITH GOLDMAN SACHS SHOULD BE MADE THROUGH
DAN HOFGREN IN WASHINGTON). I WOULD NEED NO HOTEL RESER-
VATIONS IN EITHER WASHINGTON OR NEW YORK.

6. PLEASE ADVISE.
