56 STAT.] URUGUAY-RECIPROCAL TRADE-JULY 21, 1942 Oriental Republic of Uruguay es- tablishes or maintains a monopoly for the importation, production or sale of a particular article or grants exclusive privileges, for- mally or in effect, to one or more agencies to import, produce or sell a particular article, the commerce of the other country shall receive fair and equitable treatment in re- spect of the foreign purchases of such monopoly or agency. To this end such monopoly or agency will, in making its foreign purchases of any article, be influenced solely by considerations, such as those of price, quality, marketability and terms of sale, which would ordi- narily be taken into account by a private commercial enterprise in- terested solely in purchasing on the most favorable terms. 2. The Government of each country, in the awarding of con- tracts for public works and gen- erally in the purchase of supplies, shall accord fair and equitable treatment to the commerce of the other country as compared with the treatment accorded to the commerce of other foreign coun- tries. ARTICLE VI 1. Laws, regulations of admin- istrative authorities and decisions of administrative or judicial au- thorities of the United States of America or the Oriental Republic of Uruguay, respectively, per- taining to the classification of articles for customs purposes or to rates of duty shall be published promptly in such a manner as to enable traders to become ac- quainted with them. tal del Uruguay estableciera o mantuviera un monopolio de la importaci6n, producci6n o venta de un articulo determinado, u otor- gara privilegios exclusivos, for- malmente o de hecho, a uno o mas organismos, para importar, pro- ducir o vender un articulo determi- nado, el comercio del otro pais recibira tratamiento justo y equi- tativo con respecto a las compras en el extranjero efectuadas por dicho monopolio u organismo. A ese efecto, dicho monopolio u or- ganismo, al efectuar sus compras en el extranjero de cualquier arti- culo, se guiara unicamente por consideraciones tales como las de precio, calidad, posibilidad de colo- caci6n en los mercados y condi- ciones de venta, consideraciones que habitualmente tomaria en cuenta una empresa comercial privada interesada solamente en comprar en las condiciones mAs favorables. 2. El Gobierno de cada pals, al adjudicar contratos para obras pliblicas, y generalmente en la ad- quisici6n de materiales, acordara un tratamiento justo y equitativo al comercio del otro pals compa- rable con el tratamiento concedido al comercio de otros paises ex- tranjeros. ARTICULO VI 1. Las leyes, reglamentaciones de autoridades administrativas y decisiones de autoridades adminis- trativas o judiciales de los Estados Unidos de America o de la Repu- blica Oriental del Uruguay, res- pectivamente, relativas a la clasi- ficaci6n de articulos para fines aduaneros o aranceles, seran pu- blicadas inmediatamente, de ma- nera que permitan a los comer- ciantes el conocimiento de las mismas. Public-works con- tracts, etc. Laws, regulations, and decisions. 1631
