The U.S. government is closely monitoring and supporting Burma’s progress on reform, and the core authorities underlying our sanctions remain in place. Despite positive changes, the United States remains concerned about corruption, remaining political prisoners, continued military ties to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, and ethnic conflict. U.S. policy remains calibrated, and through the Treasury Department’s Specially Designated Persons (SDN) list, the United States will take steps to exclude those who continue to perpetrate the violence, oppression, and corrupt practices of the past from participating in our countries’ growing bilateral diplomatic and economic ties. U.S. persons are still prohibited from engaging in transactions with persons included on the SDN list, as well as any entity in which such a person owns, directly or indirectly, a 50 percent or greater interest.
The United States is committed to supporting positive political and economic reforms in Burma, and we urge the Burmese Government to continue this progress by implementing measures that increase socio-economic development, promote government transparency and accountability, protect human rights, and advance ethnic reconciliation across the country.
General License No. 18 Authorizes the Importation of Products of Burma
· The Department of State, pursuant to a delegation of authority from the President, has waived the ban on the importation of products of Burma set forth in section 3(a) of the BFDA.
· Consistent with this waiver, Treasury Department has issued General License No. 18 (GL 18) authorizing the importation into the United States of any article that is a product of Burma, subject to certain limitations. GL 18 does not authorize the importation into the United States of jadeite or rubies mined or extracted from Burma, or of articles of jewelry containing jadeite or rubies mined or extracted from Burma or any other activity prohibited by Section 3A of the BFDA, an amendment added by the Tom Lantos Block Burmese JADE (Junta’s Anti-Democratic Efforts) Act of 2008. GL 18 also does not authorize transactions with any person blocked under the Burma sanctions program.
