Memorandum on Determination on Turkmenistan

August 8, 2003

 Presidential Determination No. 2003-31

Memorandum for the Secretary of State

Subject: Determination on Turkmenistan

    Pursuant to Presidential Determination 98-7 of December 5, 1997, 
Turkmenistan was found to be not in violation of paragraph (1), (2), or 
(3) of subsection 402(a) of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2432(a) and 
2439(a)) (the ``Act'') or paragraph (1), (2), or (3) of subsection 
409(a) of the Act. That determination with respect to Turkmenistan is no 
longer in effect.
    Consistent with section 402(c)(2)(A) of the Act, I determine that a 
waiver by Executive Order of the application of subsections (a) and (b) 
of section 402 of the Act with respect to Turkmenistan will 
substantially promote the objectives of section 402.
    On my behalf, please transmit this determination to the Speaker of 
the House of Representatives and to the President of the Senate.
    You are authorized and directed to publish this determination in the 
Federal Register.
                                                George W. Bush

of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, with respect to a waiver of the

    I report in that document my determination that such a waiver will

received the assurances with respect to the emigration practices of 
Turkmenistan required by section 402(c) (2)(B) of the Act.
     Sincerely,
                                                George W. Bush

Letter to Congressional Leaders Transmitting a Report on the Extension 
of Normal Trade Relations Status for Certain Former Eastern Bloc States

August 8, 2003

Dear Mr. Speaker:  (Dear Mr. President:)

    I hereby submit an updated report to the Congress, prepared by my 
Administration, consistent with sections 402(b) and 409(b) of the Trade 
Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2432(b) and 2439(b)), concerning the 
emigration laws and policies of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, 
Moldova, the Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and 
Uzbekistan. The report indicates continued compliance of these countries 
with international standards concerning freedom of emigration, with the 
exception of Turkmenistan. In light of new developments, I am submitting 
a waiver for Turkmenistan.
     Sincerely,
                                                George W. Bush
