SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The AGOA (Title I of the Trade and 
Development Act of 2000, Pub. L. 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 for countries meeting 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 2006, 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
