The Jackson-Vanik Graduation Coalition, of which the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation is a key partner, holds its first planning meeting in Washington, DC. In attendence at the meeting are Nadia McConnell, U.S.-Ukraine Foundation President, John Kun, Ulyana Panchishin, Juan Carlos Campos, Christina Redko, and Alana Malick.
Headed by former U.S. Ambassadors to Ukraine, Steven Pifer and William Miller, the Jackson-Vanik Graduation Coalition is working to achieve Ukraine’s graduation from the Jackson-Vanik Amendment before the November 2005 Congressional recess.
Coalition leadership will soon be meeting with key members of Congress and the White House. Congress is currently considering a total of six bills that would graduate Ukraine from Jackson-Vanik and extend permanent normal trade relations status to Ukraine. All six bills have been referred to committee and await consideration. For more information, or to participate in the Coalition’s efforts please email JVGC@usukraine.org.
