May 6, 2002.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the Committee 
              on Ways and Means and ordered to be printed

                               __________

                    U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE
99-011                     WASHINGTON : 2002

To the Congress of the United States:
    Public Law 99-190, 99 Stat. 1319, which took effect on 
December 19, 1985, authorized the President to deny normal 
trade relations (NTR) tariff treatment to the products of 
Afghanistan. On January 31, 1986, President Reagan issued a 
proclamation denying NTR treatment to Afghanistan.
    I have determined that it is appropriate to restore NTR 
treatment to the products of Afghanistan. Restoration of NTR 
treatment will support U.S. efforts to normalize relations with 
Afghanistan and facilitate increased trade with the United 
States, which could contribute to economic growth and assist 
Afghanistan in rebuilding its economy. Therefore, in accordance 
with section 118 of Public Law 99-190, I hereby provide notice 
that I have issued the attached proclamation restoring NTR 
tariff treatment to the products of Afghanistan. The 
Proclamation shall take effect 30 days after it is published in 
the Federal Register.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, May 3, 2002.
 To Restore Nondiscriminatory Trade Treatment (Normal Trade Relations 
               Treatment) to the Products of Afghanistan

                              ----------                              


            By the President of the United States of America

                             A PROCLAMATION

    1. Section 118(a)(1) of Public Law 99-190, 99 Stat. 1319, 
authorized the President to deny nondiscriminatory trade 
treatment to the products of Afghanistan and thereby cause such 
products to be subject to the rate of duty in column 2 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS).
    2. Presidential proclamation 5437 of January 31, 1986, 
modified the HTS so as to deny nondiscriminatory trade 
treatment to the products of Afghanistan.
    3. Restoration of nondiscriminatory trade treatment will 
support U.S. efforts to normalize relations with Afghanistan 
and facilitate increased trade with the United States, which 
could contribute to economic growth and assist Afghanistan in 
rebuilding its economy.
    4. Pursuant to section 118(c)(1) of Public Law 99-190, I 
have determined that it is appropriate to restore 
nondiscriminatory trade treatment to the products of 
Afghanistan and thereby cause such products to be subject to 
the applicable rate of duty in column 1 of the HTS.
    NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, 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 
section 118 of Public Law 99-190, and section 604 of the Trade 
Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2483), do hereby proclaim 
that:
          (1) Nondiscriminatory trade treatment (normal trade 
        relations treatment) shall be restored to the products 
        of Afghanistan;
          (2) General note 3(b) of the HTS is modified to 
        exclude Afghanistan; and
          (3) The restoration of nondiscriminatory trade 
        treatment and the modification to general note 3(b) of 
        the HTS shall be effective with respect to goods 
        entered, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, 
        on or after the thirtieth day after the date of 
        publication of this proclamation in the Federal 
        Register.
    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this third 
day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand two, and of 
the Independence of the United States of America the two 
hundred and twenty-sixth.

                                                    George W. Bush.

                                  <all>
