Reinstatement of Treatment on Government Procurement of Products 
From Honduras

AGENCY: Office of the United States Trade Representative.

ACTION: Reinstatement of treatment on government procurement of 
products from Honduras.


    Under the authority delegated to me by the President in section 1-
201 of Executive Order 12260 of December 31, 1980, I hereby direct that 
products of Honduras shall be treated as eligible products for purposes 
of section 1-101 of the Executive Order. Such treatment shall not apply 
to products originating in Honduras that are excluded from duty free 
treatment under 19 U.S.C. 2703(b). Decisions on the continued 
application of this treatment will be based on ongoing evaluation of 
Honduras' efforts to improve domestic procurement practices, its 
support for relevant international initiatives, such as those in the 
World Trade Organization (WTO) Working Group on Transparency in 
Government Procurement and the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) 
Negotiating Group on Government Procurement. Performance with respect 
to the foregoing factors will be analyzed annually in September, 
although changes in the application of this treatment may be made at 
any time. Notice of any changes in this treatment with respect to any 
beneficiary will be published in the Federal Register.

Robert B. Zoellick,
United States Trade Representative.
