            My authorities have recently received information indicating that the Government of Argentina has modified the manner in which it is implementing Resolution 987/97 of the Ministry of Economy and Public Works and Services, published in Official Journal of the Argentine Republic No. 28729 on 12 September 1997, effective as of 13 September 1997, one of the measures included within the scope of the above mentioned consultations.  In particular, I draw your attention to Resolution 1506/98 of the Ministry of Economy and Public Works and Services, dated 16 November 1998, and Decision 837/98 of the Secretariat for Industry, Trade and Mining, dated 4 December 1998.


            Accordingly, upon instruction from my authorities, I wish to convey the request of the Government of Indonesia to hold another round of consultations with the Government of Argentina so that we might seek clarification of the implementation of Argentina's safeguard measures on the importation of footwear.


            We look forward to receiving your reply to this request for consultations and arranging a mutually convenient date and place for consultations.
