Proclamation 7326--To Extend Nondiscriminatory Treatment (Normal Trade 
Relations Treatment) to the Products of Albania and Kyrgyzstan


June 29, 2000

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    1. Albania has made progress, since its emergence from communism, 
toward democratic rule and the creation of a market economy. Further, I 
have found Albania to be in full compliance with the freedom of 
emigration requirements under title IV of the Trade Act of 1974 (the 
``Trade Act'') (19 U.S.C. 2431, et seq.). In 1998, Albania concluded a 
bilateral investment treaty with the United States. Albania is in the 
process of acceding to the World Trade Organization (WTO). The extension 
of unconditional normal trade relations treatment to the products of 
Albania will permit the United States to avail itself of all rights 
under the WTO with respect to Albania when that country becomes a member 
of the WTO.
    2. Pursuant to section 301(b) of Public Law 106-200, 114 Stat. 289, 
and having due regard for the findings of the Congress in section 301(a) 
of that law, I hereby determine that title IV of the Trade Act should no 
longer apply to Albania.
    3. Since 1991, Kyrgyzstan has made great progress toward democratic 
rule and toward creating a free-market economic system. Further, I have 
found Kyrgyzstan to be in full compliance with the freedom of emigration 
requirements under title IV of the Trade Act. In 1994, Kyrgyzstan 
concluded a bilateral investment treaty with the United States, and in 
1999 Kyrgyzstan became a member of the WTO. The extension of 
unconditional normal trade relations treatment to the products of 
Kyrgyzstan will permit the United States to avail itself of all rights 
under the WTO with respect to Kyrgyzstan.
    4. Pursuant to section 302(b) of Public Law 106-200, 114 Stat. 289-
90, and having due regard for the findings of the Congress in section 
302(a) of that law, I hereby determine that title IV of the Trade Act 
should no longer apply to Kyrgyzstan.
    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 
301(b)(1)(B) and 302(b)(1)(B) of Public Law 106-200, do hereby proclaim 
that:
    (1) Nondiscriminatory treatment (normal trade relations treatment) 
shall be extended to the products of Albania;
    (2) The extension of nondiscriminatory treatment to the products of 
Albania shall be effective as of the date of signature of this 
proclamation;
    (3) Nondiscriminatory treatment (normal trade relations treatment) 
shall be extended to the products of Kyrgyzstan;
    (4) The extension of nondiscriminatory treatment to the products of 
Kyrgyzstan shall be effective as of the date of signature of this 
proclamation.
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-ninth 
day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand, and of the 
Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-
fourth.
                                            William J. Clinton

[Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 11:15 a.m., July 3, 
2000]

Note: This proclamation was released by the Office of the Press 
Secretary on June 30, and it was published in the Federal Register on

Exchange With Reporters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

June 30, 2000

President's Electronic Signature

[The transcript began with a reporter's paraphrased question concerning 
bill signings.]

    The President. ----we had a question if I could even fax a signature 
back on bills and Executive orders. The electronic signature, in effect, 
defines what the obligations--the satisfaction of the obligations of 
commerce contracts. Congress clearly has the authority to define that. 
But there's an open question as to whether we could do it for bills and 
fax. That's why I signed the bill before I did this, because that might 
require a constitutional amendment. And at least it would require some 
sort of judicial opinion or something before we could decide to do it.
    But the volume of bills signed every year is so small, that's really 
not that much of a problem. The only real problem would be if the 
President for some reason had to go abroad at a time when the time was 
running out on a bill. So that's really the only issue here.
    Thank you.

 Note:  The exchange began at approximately 11:15 a.m. at Independence 
Hall. S. 761, the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce 
Act, approved June 30, was assigned Public Law No. 106-229. A tape was 
not available for verification of the content of this exchange. This 
item was not received in time for publication in the appropriate issue.

Statement on Signing the Electronic Signatures in Global and National 
Commerce Act

June 30, 2000

    Today I am pleased to sign into law S. 761, the ``Electronic 
Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act.'' This landmark 
legislation will help ensure that we reap the full benefits that

    The digital economy plays an increasingly important role in our
