Dear Madam Speaker: Pursuant to Section 36(c) of the Arms Export Control Act, I am transmitting, herewith, certification of a proposed amendment to a technical assistance agreement for the export of defense articles, to include technical data, and defense services in the amount of $50,000,000 or more.

Taiwan Air Force is the end user.

The United States Government is prepared to license the export of these items having taken into account political, military, economic, human rights and arms control considerations.
