the directive issued to you on November 29, 1994, by the Chairman, 
Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements. That 
directive concerns imports of certain wool textile products, 
produced or manufactured in Bulgaria and exported during the twelve-
month period beginning on January 1, 1995 and extending through 
December 31, 1995.
    Effective on September 11, 1995, you are directed to adjust the 
limits for the following categories, pursuant to the current 
bilateral textile agreement between the Governments of the United 
States and the Republic of Bulgaria:

              Category                 Twelve-month restraint limit \1\

435................................  21,830 dozen.                      
448................................  21,830 dozen.

  exported after December 31, 1994.

determined that these actions fall within the foreign affairs
