FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Robert A. Carrigg, Office of the

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 205(a) of the Act (Pub. L. 109-53; 
119 Stat. 462, 483; 19 U.S.C. 4034) provides that certain entries of 
textile or apparel goods of designated eligible countries that are 
parties to the Dominican Republic--Central America--United States Free 
Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) made on or after January 1, 2004 may be 
liquidated or reliquidated at the applicable rate of duty for those 
goods established in the Schedule of the United States to Annex 3.3 of 
the CAFTA-DR. Section 205(b) of the Act requires the USTR to determine, 
in accordance with Article 3.20 of the CAFTA-DR, which CAFTA-DR 
countries are eligible countries for purposes of Section 205(a). 
Article 3.20 provides that importers may claim retroactive duty 
treatment for imports of certain textile or apparel goods entered on or 
after January 1, 2004 and before the entry into force of CAFTA-DR from 
those CAFTA-DR countries that will provide reciprocal retroactive duty 
treatment or a benefit for textile or apparel goods that is equivalent 
to retroactive duty treatment.
    Pursuant to Section 205(b) of the Act, I have determined that the 
Dominican Republic will provide an equivalent benefit for textile or 
apparel goods of the United States within the meaning of Article 3.20 
of the CAFTA-DR. I therefore determine that the Dominican Republic is 
an eligible country for purposes of Section 205 of the Act.
