Persons with mobility impairments who will need special assistance in gaining access to the Commission should contact the Office of the Secretary at 202–205–2000. Background: On December 20, 2006, the President signed into law amendments to section 112 of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) (19 U.S.C. 3721), included in Public Law 109–432. Section 112(c)(2)(A)–(B)(i) of the amended statute requires the Commission to determine, following receipt of a petition, whether regional SSA fabric or yarn is available in commercial quantities for use in LDB SSA countries in the production of apparel articles receiving U.S. preferential treatment, and, if so, the quantity of fabric or yarn that will be so available in the following fiscal year (October 1–September 30). Once a fabric or yarn has been determined to be so available, section 112(c)(2)(B)(ii) of AGOA requires the Commission, in each subsequent year through fiscal year 2012, to determine whether such fabric or yarn will be so available in the following fiscal year, and if so, the quantity that will be available in that following fiscal year. Section 112(c)(2)(C) of AGOA deemed denim articles provided for in PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 70609 subheading 5209.42.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States to be available in commercial quantities in the amount of 30 million square meter equivalents during the period October 1, 2006– September 30, 2007 (fiscal year 2007) as if a petition had been filed and the Commission had made an affirmative determination and determined such denim fabric to be available in that quantity. In September 2007, the Commission determined, pursuant to section 112(c)(2)(B)(ii), that such denim fabric will be available in commercial quantities during fiscal year 2008, and will be available in the amount of 21,303,613 square meter equivalents. The Commission transmitted its determination and report in that investigation to the President on September 25, 2007 (Commission investigation No. AGOA–07–001, now re-designated as investigation No. AGOA–001, Commercial Availability of Fabric & Yarns in AGOA Countries: Certain Denim, Commission Publication 3950, September 2007). The Commission is required, before the end of fiscal year 2008, to make determinations concerning whether certain denim fabric will be so available during fiscal year 2009 and, if so, the quantity that will be available. The Commission has instituted investigation No. AGOA–003 for the purpose of gathering the information necessary to make these determinations. The Commission expects to transmit its determinations and report in this investigation to the President and the U.S. Trade Representative on or before August 1, 2008. It should be noted that the Commission is currently conducting a separate investigation, investigation No. AGOA–002, to determine the extent to which the denim fabric deemed to be available during fiscal year 2007 for use in LDB SSA countries in the production of apparel articles receiving U.S. preferential treatment was so used. As indicated below, the Commission will hold a consolidated public hearing for both investigations. Public Hearing: A public hearing in connection with this investigation will be held at the U.S. International Trade Commission Building, 500 E Street, SW, Washington, DC, beginning at 9:30 a.m. on April 9, 2008. To facilitate attendance at the hearing by parties also interested in attending the hearing in investigation No. AGOA–002, the Commission will hold a consolidated hearing for both investigations. Requests to appear at the public hearing should be filed with the Secretary not later than 5:15 p.m., March 18, 2008, in E:\FR\FM\12DEN1.SGM 12DEN1
