(the ‘‘1974 Act’’)), as well as for the preferential treatment the AGOA provides for certain textile and apparel articles. The President may designate a country as a beneficiary sub-Saharan African country eligible for both the additional GSP benefits and the textile and apparel benefits of the AGOA (if the country also meets certain statutory requirements intended to prevent unlawful transshipment of such articles) if he determines that the country meets the eligibility criteria set forth in: (1) Section 104 of the AGOA; and (2) section 502 of the 1974 Act. For 2005, 37 countries have been designated as beneficiary sub-Saharan African countries. These countries, as well as the 11 countries currently ineligible, are listed below. Section 506A of the 1974 Act provides that the President shall monitor, review, and report to Congress annually on the progress of each subSaharan African country in meeting the foregoing eligibility criteria in order to determine whether each beneficiary sub-Saharan African country should continue to be eligible, and whether each sub-Saharan African country that is currently not a beneficiary subSaharan African country, should be designated as such a country. The President’s determinations will be included in the annual report submitted VerDate Aug<18>2005 16:17 Sep 13, 2005 Jkt 205001 to Congress as required by Section 106 of the AGOA. Section 506A of the 1974 Act requires that, if the President determines that a beneficiary subSaharan African country is not making continual progress in meeting the eligibility requirements, he must terminate the designation of the country as a beneficiary sub-Saharan African country. The Subcommittee is seeking public comments in connection with the annual review of the eligibility of beneficiary sub-Saharan African countries for the AGOA’s benefits. The Subcommittee will consider any such comments in developing recommendations on country eligibility for the President.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The AGOA (Title I of the Trade and 
Development Act of 2000, Public Law 106-200) (19 U.S.C. 3721 et seq.), 
as amended, authorizes the President to designate sub-Saharan African 
countries as beneficiary sub-Saharan African countries eligible for 
duty-free treatment for certain additional products under the 
Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) (Title V of the Trade Act of 
1974 (19 U.S.C. 2461 et seq.) (the ``1974 Act'')), as well as for the 
preferential treatment the AGOA provides for certain textile and 
apparel articles.
    The President may designate a country as a beneficiary sub-Saharan 
African country eligible for both the additional GSP benefits and the 
textile and apparel benefits of the AGOA (if the country also meets 
certain statutory requirements intended to prevent unlawful 
transshipment of such articles) if he determines that the country meets 
the eligibility criteria set forth in: (1) Section 104 of the AGOA; and 
(2) section 502 of the 1974 Act. For 2005, 37 countries have been 
designated as beneficiary sub-Saharan African countries. These 
countries, as well as the 11 countries currently ineligible, are listed 
below. Section 506A of the 1974 Act provides that the President shall 
monitor, review, and report to Congress annually on the progress of 
each sub-Saharan African country in meeting the foregoing eligibility 
criteria in order to determine whether each beneficiary sub-Saharan 
African country should continue to be eligible, and whether each sub-
Saharan African country that is currently not a beneficiary sub-Saharan 
African country, should be designated as such a country. The 
President's determinations will be included in the annual report 
submitted to Congress as required by Section 106 of the AGOA. Section 
506A of the 1974 Act requires that, if the President determines that a 
beneficiary sub-Saharan African country is not making continual 
progress in meeting the eligibility requirements, he must terminate the 
designation of the country as a beneficiary sub-Saharan African 
country.
    The Subcommittee is seeking public comments in connection with the 
annual review of the eligibility of beneficiary sub-Saharan African 
countries for the AGOA's benefits. The Subcommittee will consider any 
such comments in developing recommendations on country eligibility for 
the President. Comments related to the child labor criteria may also be 
considered by the Secretary of Labor in making the findings required 
under section 504 of the 1974 Act.
