House reauthorizes import ban on Myanmar for three years
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Thursday to extend a ban on imports from Myanmar for three years and renew the White House's authority to waive the restriction if the Southeast Asian nation continues to make political and economic reforms. The Senate is expected shortly to approve the same measure and send it to President Barack Obama to sign into law.
