                    (A) The Government of Burma has made substantial

                    (B) The Government of Burma has made measurable and 
                substantial progress toward implementing democratic

                    (C) The Government of Burma has made measurable and 
                substantial progress toward full cooperation with

                terms of section 570(a)(1)(B) of Public Law 104-208,
