The International Trade Administration (ITA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce seeks comments on key stakeholder priorities to be considered in the development and implementation of an initiative to increase U.S. exports to and commercial ties with Africa, the Doing Business in Africa campaign (DBIA campaign), to be led by the Department of Commerce in coordination with the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC). The DBIA campaign was announced on November 28, 2012, in Johannesburg, South Africa, and will advance the goals of the ``U.S. Strategy Toward Sub-Saharan Africa,'' (Strategy) issued by President Barack Obama June 14, 2012.

Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations: Initial Implementation of Export Control Reform
As part of the Export Control Reform (ECR) Initiative, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), and the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), Department of State, have published multiple proposed amendments to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), respectively, to strengthen national security by fundamentally reforming the export control system. This final rule implements the initial ECR changes by adding a structure and related provisions to control munitions items that the President has determined no longer warrant export control on the U.S. Munitions List (USML) on the Commerce Control List (CCL), specifically aircraft, gas turbine engines, and related items. This rule is being published in conjunction with a Department of State rule that revises the USML so that upon the effective date of both rules, the USML and CCL and corresponding regulatory structures will be complementary. The revisions in this final rule are also part of Commerce's retrospective regulatory review plan under EO 13563, which Commerce completed in August 2011.
