PROCLAMATION 3744-SEPT. 13, 1966

9. WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 201(a) of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, the President has determined that certain existing duties or other import restrictions of the United States or of foreign countries which are contracting parties to the General Agreement, were unduly burdening and restricting the foreign trade of the United States and that one or more of the purposes stated in Section 102 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 (19 U.S.C. 1801) would be promoted by entering into the trade agreement with Japan identified in the tenth recital of this proclamation; 10. WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 201(a)(1) of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, I, through my duly empowered representative, have entered into a trade agreement with Japan entitled the "Interim Agreement between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of Japan Relating to the Renegotiation of Schedule X X (United States) to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade" (a copy of which is Appendix B to this proclamation ^), which embodies the results of the negotiations with Japan as part of the negotiations under Article X X VIII of the General Agreement for the establishment of a new consolidated Schedule X X thereto in terms of the Tariff Schedules of the United States and of the negotiations with a view to reaching the mutually satisfactory adjustment of the balance of concessions referred to in the second recital of this proclamation; 11. WHEREAS the trade agreement with Japan identified in the tenth recital of this proclamation, which is an agreement supplementary to the General Agreement, contains in annex II a schedule of concessions, to take effect as provided therein, in compensation for the impairment, arising out of the entry into force of the Tariff Schedules of the United States, of the rights of Japan in concessions in Schedule X X to the General Agreement, and provides that such concessions shall be applied as if they were included in a Schedule X X to the General Agreement pending the formal effectiveness of a new consolidated Schedule X X; 12. WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 254 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 (19 U.S.C. 1884), I have determined that, in the case of those modifications of existing duties proclaimed in this proclamation which reflect decreases in duties exceeding the limitations specified in Section 201(b)(1) or 253 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 (19 U.S.C. 1821(b)(1) or 1883), such decreases will simplify the computation of the amount of duty imposed with respect to the articles concerned; and 13. WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 201(a)(2) of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962,1 determine that the modification or continuance of existing duties or other import restrictions, and the continuance of existing duty-free or excise treatment, hereinafter proclaimed, will be required or appropriate to carry out such trade agreement: NOW, THEREFORE, I, LYNDON B. JOHNSON, President of the United States of America, acting under the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the statutes, including Section 201(a)(2) of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, do proclaim that: Filed with Office of Federal Register as part of the original document.
