THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release July 17, 1996
TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES:
On June 3, 1993, I determined and reported to the Congress that Bulgaria is in full compliance with the freedom of emigration criteria of sections 402 and 409 of the Trade Act of 1974. This action allowed for the continuation of most-favored-nation (MFN) status for Bulgaria and certain other activities without the requirement of a waiver.
As required by law, I am submitting an updated report to the Congress concerning emigration laws and policies of the Republic of Bulgaria. The report indicates continued Bulgarian compliance with U.S. and international standards in the area of emigration policy.
WILLIAM J. CLINTON
THE WHITE HOUSE,
July 17, 1996.
