Message to the Congress on Extending Generalized System of Preferences Benefits to the Solomon Islands
To the Congress of the United States:
In accordance with section 502(f)(1)(B) of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (the "Act"), I am providing notification of my intent to add the Solomon Islands to the list of least-developed beneficiary developing countries under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) program. In Executive Order 12302 of April 1, 1981, the Solomon Islands was designated as a beneficiary developing country for purposes of the GSP program. After considering the criteria set forth in sections 501 and 502 of the Act, I have determined that it is appropriate to extend least-developed beneficiary developing country benefits to the Solomon Islands.
