Entry Title Date
Honoring Ambassador Seng Soukhathivong And The Lao People’S Democratic Republic November 14, 2014
Eni Faleomavaega, D-AS
"Since this time, both countries have worked together on key issues, including carrying out humanitarian work for and on behalf of those missing in action (MIA). In 2008, the Lao PDR and USA established military-to-military cooperation. Laos would like to work more closely on UXO clearance, counter-narcotics, and the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP)."
Honoring Ambassador U Kyaw Myo Htut And The Government Of Myanmar November 14, 2014
Eni Faleomavaega, D-AS
"Ambassador U Kyaw Myo Htut aims to promote trade and strengthen bilateral ties with the United States. An essential part of his job is to push for more U.S. investment in Myanmar while addressing human rights issues. In that regard, he works towards re-allowing the Generalized System of Preference (GSP) for trade with Myanmar, which Congress stopped extending in July 2013."
Disapproval Of Epa Emission Standards Rule—Motion To Proceed June 20, 2012
Jon Kyl, R-AZ
"The NGS was constructed as part of a negotiated settlement with environmental interests that, at the time, preferred a coal-fired powerplant to a hydropower dam project in the Grand Canyon. It provides more than 90 percent of the pumping power for the Central Arizona Project, Arizona’s primary water delivery system. The plant and the coal mined to operate it play a vital role in the economies of the Navajo Nation and the Hopi Tribe, not to mention the State as a whole. A study prepared by Arizona State University’s Seidman Institute concluded that the NGS and its associated mine will account for over $20 billion in gross State product—GSP—almost $680 million in adjusted State tax revenues, and more than 3,000 jobs."
Regarding The Package Of Trade Bills October 24, 2011
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"The Colombia FTA is also a win for the American economy. The benefits Colombia has enjoyed as a result of its membership among the GSP recipient countries has meant that it has had significant and one-sided access to the American market. This FTA balances that relationship so that now American companies enjoy the same access to Colombia’s growing economy that Colombia has enjoyed in the U.S. for decades."
Colombia Free Trade Agreement October 17, 2011
Tom Harkin, D-IA
"We have made some progress over the years by funding programs for the remediation of child laborers through our contribution to the ILO’s International Program for the Elimination of Child Labor, IPEC. In 2000, I successfully amended the Trade and Development Act with a provision directing that no trade benefits under the Generalized System of Preferences, GSP, be granted to any country that does not live up to its commitments to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. I required that the President submit a yearly report to Congress on the steps being taken by each GSP beneficiary country to carry out its commitments to end abusive and exploitative child labor."
