ATMI PRESIDENT ISSUES STATEMENT ON NAFTA

 ATMI PRESIDENT ISSUES STATEMENT ON NAFTA
 WASHINGTON, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- M.L. Cates Jr., president of the


American Textile Manufacturers Institute, issued the following statement today on the conclusion of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) negotiations:
 "While we have not seen all of the details of the final package, we understand that our major concerns have been met. If, after analyzing the text, we are satisfied, I plan to recommend to our board that ATMI support the agreement.
 "At the beginning of this negotiation ATMI concluded that a minimum acceptable outcome meant having a strong rule of origin and effective customs enforcement measures. Our organization has worked closely with the U.S. Trade Representative, Ambassador Carla Hills, and the U.S. Trade Representative's chief textile negotiator, Ambassador Ron Sorini, to try to ensure that our concerns were addressed satisfactorily.
 "I want to thank Ambassador Hills for her commitment and hard work towards an agreement that is aimed at benefiting producers, workers and the general economies of the North American countries."
