That directive concerns imports of certain cotton, wool and man-made fiber textile products, produced or manufactured in Costa Rica and exported during the twelve-month period which began on January 1, 2000 and extends through December 31, 2000.

Effective on January 19, 2000, you are directed to reduce the current limit for Category 443 to 212,012 numbers [1] , as provided for under the Uruguay Round Agreement on Textiles and Clothing. The guaranteed access level for Category 443 remains unchanged.

The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements has determined that this action falls within the foreign affairs exception of the rulemaking provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1).

Sincerely,

Start Signature
