Presidential Determination — Pursuant to Section 570(a) of the Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 1997

December 2, 2016 this determination in the form of a memorandum for the Secretary of State was posted.

In this brief statement the key phrase is “Burma has made measurable and substantial progress in improving human rights practices and implementing democratic government”.

There is a reference to an accompanying Memorandum of Justification, but so far that is not posted on the website. I waited a few days to post this note in hopes the Memorandum of Justification would appear, but not yet.
