NOTIFICATION OF HIS INTENTION TO ADD ARMENIA TO THE LIST OF BENEFICIARY

  February 6, 1995.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
Committee on Ways and Means and ordered to be printed February 6, 1995.
To the Congress of the United States:

    The Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) program offers 
duty-free treatment to specified products that are imported 
from designated beneficiary countries. It is authorized by the 
Trade Act of 1974, as amended.
    I am writing to inform you of my intent to add Armenia to 
the list of beneficiary developing countries for purposes of 
the GSP program. I have carefully considered the criteria 
identified in sections 501 and 502 of the Trade Act of 1974. In 
light of these criteria, I have determined that it is 
appropriate to extend GSP benefits to Armenia.
    I am also writing to inform you of my decision to terminate 
the designation of The Bahamas and the designation of Israel as 
beneficiary developing countries for purposes of the GSP 
program. Pursuant to section 504(f) of the Trade Act of 1974, I 
have determined that the per capita gross national products of 
The Bahamas and of Israel have exceeded the applicable limit 
provided for in section 504(f). Accordingly, I have determined 
that it is appropriate to terminate the designation of The 
Bahamas and Israel as GSP beneficiaries.
    This notice is submitted in accordance with sections 
502(a)(1) and 502(a)(2) of the Trade Act of 1974.
                                                William J. Clinton.
    THE WHITE HOUSE, February 3, 1995.


             TO AMEND THE GENERALIZED SYSTEM OF PREFERENCES

                              ----------                              


            By the President of the United States of America

                             a proclamation

    1. Pursuant to sections 501 and 502 of the Trade Act of 
1974, as amended (``Trade Act'') (19 U.S.C. 2461 and 2462), and 
having due regard for the eligibility criteria set forth 
therein, I have determined that it is appropriate to designate 
Armenia as a beneficiary developing country for purposes of the 
Generalized System of Preferences (GSP).
    2. Pursuant to section 504(f) of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 
2462(f)), I have determined that the per capita gross national 
product of The Bahamas has exceeded the applicable limit 
provided for in section 504(f). Accordingly, pursuant to 
section 504(a) of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2464(a)), I have 
determined that it is appropriate to suspend the designation of 
The Bahamas as a beneficiary developing country for purposes of 
the GSP, and pursuant to section 504(f) of the Trade Act, I 
have determined that it is appropriate to terminate such 
designation.
    3. Pursuant to section 504(f) of the Trade Act, I have 
determined that the per capita gross national product of Israel 
has exceeded the applicable limit provided for in section 
504(f). Accordingly, I have determined that it is appropriate 
to terminate the designation of Israel as a beneficiary 
developing country for purposes of the GSP.
    4. Section 604 of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2483) authorizes 
the President to embody in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (HTS) the substance of the provisions of that 
Act, and of other acts affecting import treatment, and actions 
thereunder.
    NOW, THEREFORE, I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, President of the 
United States of America, acting under the authority vested in 
me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, 
including but not limited to sections 501, 504, and 604 of the 
Trade Act, do proclaim that:
    (1) General note 4(a) to the HTS, listing those countries 
whose products are eligible for benefits of the GSP, is 
modified by: (a) inserting ``Armenia'' in alphabetical order in 
the list of independent countries;
    (b) deleting ``Bahamas, The'' and ``Israel'' from the list 
of independent countries; and
    (c) deleting ``Bahamas, The'' from the list of Member 
Countries of the Caribbean Common Market, and amending the 
heading of that list to read ``Member Countries of the 
Caribbean Common Market (CARICOM), except The Bahamas''.
    (2) General note 4(d) to the HTS is modified as provided in 
Annex I to this proclamation.
    (3) Any provisions of previous proclamations and Executive 
orders inconsistent with the provisions of this proclamation 
are hereby superseded to the extent of such inconsistency.
    (4) (a) The modifications to the HTS made by paragraph 
(1)(a) of this proclamation shall be effective with respect to 
articles that are: (i) imported on or after January 1, 1976, 
and (ii) entered, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, 
on or after 15 days after the date of publication of this 
proclamation in the Federal Register.
    (b) The modifications to the HTS made by paragraphs (1)(b), 
(1)(c), and (2) shall be effective on July 1, 1995.
    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this third 
day of February, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and 
ninety-five, and of the Independence of the United States of 
America the two hundred and nineteenth.
                                                 William J. Clinton

    Annex I.--Modifications to General Note 4(d) of the HTS
    Effective with respect to articles both: (i) imported on or 
after January 1, 1976, and (ii) entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse for consumption, on or after July 1, 1995.
    General note 4(d) is modified by:
    (a) deleting the following HTS subheadings and the country
