Locke and Gates met for approximately one hour and agreed to continue to work together with their counterparts at other cabinet agencies toward these reforms.

They plan to meet again in the next few weeks with fellow administration officials to address their progress.

On July 22nd Secretary Gary Locke said that "undertaking a review of export controls" is one of his top five priorities and that he has already instructed the Bureau of Industry and Security to initiate a review of the entire U.S. export control system. The White House subsequently announced that the Obama Administration would conduct a review of the U.S. export control system.

Secretary Locke will be the keynote speaker at next week's Update Conference on Export Controls and Policy presented by the Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security.

We hope to see many of our readers at Update.
