107 STAT. 2604 PROCLAMATION 6517—DEC. 23, 1992 pride in quality and service, diligence in pursuit of a goal, attention to detail, and respect for learning and achievement. By celebrating traditional American craft and by saluting the men and women who have mastered fine trades, we reaffirm the importance of those timeless values. Crafts are inspired by the best in American tradition, yet they also reflect the informed creativity and vision of the present. Having learned from the past, today's artisans and craftspeople are adding their own unique touches to American culture. As we celebrate traditional craft and folk art in the United States, we also recognize each of the masters and apprentices who, through their works of the hand, continue to preserve and shape this living legacy of beauty. The Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 218, has designated 1993 as a "Year of American Craft: A Celebration of the Creative Work of the Hand" and has authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of this year. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim 1993 as a Year of American Craft: A Celebration of the Creative Work of the Hand. I invite all Americans to observe this year with appropriate programs and activities in celebrating the traditional arts in the United States. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereimto set my hand this twenty-first day of December, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety- two, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and seventeenth. GEORGE BUSH Proclamation 6517 of December 23, 1992 To Amend the Generalized System of Preferences By the President of the United States of America A Proclamation 1. Pursuant to sections 501 and 502 of the Trade Act of 1974, Public Law 93-618, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2461 and 2462) ("Trade Act"), and having due regard for the eligibility criteria set forth therein, I have determined that it is appropriate to designate Ethiopia as a beneficiary developing country for purposes of the Generalized System of Pref- erences ("GSP"). 2. Pursuant to section 504(a)(1) of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2464(a)(1)), the President may withdraw, suspend, or limit the application of the duty-free treatment accorded under the GSP with respect to any article or any country after considering the factors set forUi in sections 501 and 502(c) of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2461 and 2462(c)). Accordingly, after taking into account the factors set forth in sections 501 and 502(c) of the Trade Act, I have determined that it is appropriate to withdraw the duty-free treatment accorded under the GSP to imports of sulfanilic acid provided for in subheading 2921.42.24 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States ("HTS").
