107 STAT. 2636 PROCLAMATION 6544—APR. 13, 1993 ingly, in accordance with an agreement between the United States and Canada, I have decided to extend the application of the quantitative limits provided in paragraph 18 through the close of December 31, 1993, unless the United States and Canada reach an earlier resolution regarding quantitative limits for these goods. The consultation and lay- over requirements of section 103 of the CFTA have been carried out. 4. Section 604 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2483) ("Trade Act"), authorizes the President to embody in the HTS the substance of other Acts affecting import treatment, and actions thereunder, including the removal, modification, continuance, or imposition of any rate of duty or other import restriction. NOW, THEREFORE, I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, President of the United States of America, acting under the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including but not limited to section 202 of the CFTA Act and section 604 of the Trade Act, do proclaim that: (1) In order to extend by 1 year the quantitative provisions of paragraph 18, the HTS is modified by striking out "1992" from general note 3(c)(vii)(R)(ll)(rr) and by inserting in lieu thereof "1993".

Sections 202 and 204 of the Andean Trade Preference Act ("ATPA") (19 U.S.C. 3201 and 3203) confer authority upon the President to proclaim duty-free treatment for all eligible articles, and duty reductions for certain other articles, that are the product of any country designated as a "beneficiary country" in accordance with the provisions of section 203 of the ATPA (19 U.S.C. 3202).
