The U.S. Government anticipates holding negotiations during 2001 concerning expiring bilateral agreements concerning certain cotton, wool, man-made fiber, silk blend and other vegetable fiber textiles and textile products from Cambodia, China and Taiwan if they do not accede to the WTO this year. All three of these agreements expire on December 31, 2001. Anyone wishing to comment or provide data or information regarding these agreements is invited to submit 10 copies of such comments or information to D. Michael Hutchinson, Acting Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; ATTN: Becky Geiger.

Further comment may be invited regarding particular comments or information received from the public which the Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements considers appropriate for further consideration.
