That directive concerns imports of certain cotton and man-made fiber textiles and textile products, produced or manufactured in Vietnam and exported during the twelve-month period which began on January 1, 2005 and extends through December 31, 2005.
Effective on September 27, 2005, you are directed to adjust the limits for the following categories, as provided for under the terms of the current bilateral textile agreement between the Governments of the United States and Vietnam:
|Category||Restraint limit 1|

|620||8,087,620 square meters.|
|1 The limits have not been adjusted to account for any imports exported after December 31, 2004.|
The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements has determined that these actions fall within the foreign affairs exception to the rulemaking provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1).
