Your may remember Ambassador James Spalding. He was the Paraguayan Ambassador to the USA and a good friend of Kansas Paraguay Partners. I think that he attended every KPP Annual Meeting while he was Ambassador. He has now been named to head Itaipu for the new Paraguayan president Horacio Cartes. Itaipu is a joint hydroelectric dam built with Brazil. It still ranks as the largest hydroelectric dam in terms of electrical generation in the world.

Look for more Kansas connections to the new cabinet in a day or so. I am collecting more information.
