The subcommittee heard testimony on the Bush administration’s fiscal year 1992 budget proposal for Asia. The Bush administration is requesting $702.5 million for East Asia and the Pacific, representing 5.8 percent of total U.S. foreign assistance. Testimony included discussion of the Bush administration’s indications that it wants to renew China’s most favored nation status. Critics of the Chinese government disapprove of the renewal of most favored nation status to China on the grounds China continues to deny full civil rights to its citizens, continues trade practices harmful to the U.S., and is making no movement toward democracy. Mr. Solomon summed up the U.S. foreign policy concerning countries in Eastern Asia, in which the Philippines remain the only country receiving extensive foreign aid. He said indications by China on minor issues showed progress on reducing exports of products produced by prisoners and other issues that originally raised concern in the U.S. close
