                Notice of May 15, 2015

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Burma

                On May 20, 1997, the President issued Executive Order 
                13047, certifying to the Congress under section 570(b) 
                of the Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and 
                Related Programs Appropriations Act, 1997 (Public Law 
                104-208), that the Government of Burma had committed 
                large-scale repression of the democratic opposition in 
                Burma after September 30, 1996, thereby invoking the 
                prohibition on new investment in Burma by United States 
                persons contained in that section. The President also 
                declared a national emergency pursuant to the 
                International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 
                1701-1706, to deal with the unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the national security and foreign policy of 
                the United States constituted by the actions and 
                policies of the Government of Burma.

                The actions and policies of the Government of Burma 
                continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to 
                the national security and foreign policy of the United 
                States. For this reason, the national emergency 
                declared on May 20, 1997, and the measures adopted to 
                deal with that emergency in Executive Orders 13047 of 
                May 20, 1997; 13310 of July 28, 2003; 13448 of October 
                18, 2007; 13464 of April 30, 2008; 13619 of July 11, 
                2012; and 13651 of August 6, 2013, must continue in 
                effect beyond May 20, 2015. Therefore, in accordance 
                with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 
                U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the 
                national emergency with respect to Burma declared in 
                Executive Order 13047. This notice shall be published 
                in the Federal Register and transmitted to the 
                Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    May 15, 2015.
