<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>


  January 21, 1997.--Referred to the Committee on Ways and Means and 
                         ordered to be printed


                                           The White House,
                                       Washington, January 3, 1997.
Hon. Newt Gingrich,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: On September 4, 1996, I determined and 
reported to the Congress that Mongolia is in full compliance 
with the freedom of emigration criteria of sections 402 and 409 
of the Trade Act of 1974. This action allowed for the 
continuation of most-favored-nation (MFN) status for Mongolia 
and certain other activities without the requirement of an 
annual waiver.
    As required by law, I am submitting an updated report to 
the Congress concerning the emigration laws and policies of 
Mongolia. You will find that the report indicates continued 
Mongolian compliance with U.S. and international standards in 
the area of emigration.
            Sincerely,
                                                William J. Clinton.
 Report to Congress Concerning Emigration Laws and Policies of Mongolia

    This report is submitted pursuant to sections 402 and 409 
of the Trade Act of 1974 (``the Act''), as amended (``the 
Jackson-Vanik Amendment''), following Presidential 
Determination Number 96-51 of September 4, 1996, and the 
accompanying report to Congress, that Mongolia is not in 
violation of paragraphs (1), (2) or (3) of sections 402(a) and 
409(a) of the Act.
    All current information indicates that the emigration laws 
and practices of Mongolia continue to satisfy the criteria set 
forth in sections 402(a) and 409(a) of the Act in respect of 
all matters covered in those subsections. Mongolia's ``Law on 
Emigration and Private Trips of Mongolian Citizens Abroad'' has 
been in effect since February 1, 1994. The law gives Mongolian 
citizens the right to move freely within the country, travel 
and emigrate, and return to Mongolia. These rights are 
exercised in fact.
    A passport and exit visa (received for a nominal fee) are 
the only requirements to leave the country. Every citizen has 
the right to return to Mongolia following emigration. Citizens 
may not be forcibly expatriated and may not be deprived of 
citizenship acquired by birth. There are no outstanding 
emigration cases involving the United States and no divided 
family cases in Mongolia. Mongolia has accepted refugees from 
Inner Mongolia, although the number of refugees seeking 
resettlement is small.
    The election of a new government last June headed by the 
former opposition Democratic Coalition represents continued 
progress toward a stable democratic political system. This was 
the first peaceful electoral transfer of power to an opposition 
party in the nation's history. The new government, despite 
tremendous economic difficulties, is working to expand civil 
society by establishing civilian control over the security 
forces and seeking increased transparency in parliamentary and 
governmental operations.
    There are no impediments to monitoring human rights 
developments in Mongolia.
