The textile and apparel trade sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:07 Jul 02, 2018 Jkt 244001 benefits under AGOA are available to imports of eligible products from countries that the President designates as ‘‘beneficiary sub-Saharan African countries,’’ provided that these countries: (1) Have adopted an effective visa system and related procedures to prevent the unlawful transshipment of textile and apparel articles and the use of counterfeit documents in connection with shipment of such articles; and (2) have implemented and follow, or are making substantial progress towards implementing and following, certain customs procedures that assist the U.S. Customs and Border Protection in verifying the origin of the products. In Proclamation 9687 dated December 22, 2017 (82 FR 61414), the President designated Swaziland (now known as Eswatini) as a ‘‘beneficiary sub-Saharan African country’’ and proclaimed, for the purposes of section 112(c) of AGOA, that Swaziland (now known as Eswatini) should be considered a lesser developed beneficiary sub-Saharan African country. Based on the actions Eswatini has taken, the United States Trade Representative has determined that Eswatini has satisfied the two requirements for eligibility for textile and apparel benefits under AGOA. In Proclamation 7350 of October 2, 2000, the President authorized the United States Trade Representative to perform the function of determining whether eligible sub-Saharan countries have met the two requirements described above. The President directed the United States Trade Representative to announce any such determinations in the Federal Register and to implement them through modifications in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS). Accordingly, pursuant to the authority vested in the United States Trade Representative in Proclamation 7350, U.S. note 7(a) to subchapter II of chapter 98 of the HTS, is modified by inserting ‘‘Eswatini’’ in alphabetical sequence in the list of countries, and U.S. notes 1 and 2(d) to subchapter XIX of chapter 98 of the HTS are modified to add in numerical sequence, in the list of designated sub-Saharan African countries, the name ‘‘Eswatini,’’ in alphabetical sequence and to delete therefrom ‘‘Kingdom of Swaziland’’. The foregoing modifications to the HTS are effective with respect to articles entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after the effective date of this notice. Imports claiming preferential tariff treatment under the AGOA for entries of textile and apparel articles should ensure that those entries meet the PO 00000 Frm 00138 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 applicable visa requirements. See 66 FR 7837 (January 25, 2001). Presidential Proclamation 6969 of January 27, 1997 (62 FR 4415), authorizes the United States Trade Representative to exercise the authority provided to the President under section 604 of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2483) to embody rectifications, technical or conforming changes, or similar modifications in the HTS. Pursuant to the delegated authority vested in the United States Trade Representative in Proclamation 6969, general notes 4(a) and 16(a) to the HTS are each modified by deleting ‘‘Swaziland’’ and by inserting in alphabetical sequence in such notes ‘‘Eswatini’’, in order to reflect the recent change in name of Swaziland to Eswatini. Robert Lighthizer, United States Trade Representative.
