NSC 122/1
  UNITED STATES EXPORT LICENSING PoLIcY TOWARD HONG KONG
                             AND MACAO
                             OBJECTIVES
  United States export licensing policy to Hong Kong and Macao
should serve to insure that the aims set forth in NSC 104/2,2 of
limiting Soviet bloc access to strategic and critical commodities and
of denying any United States exports to Communist China, Man-
churia, and North Korea, are not frustrated, while at the same
time permitting Hong Kong and Macao to receive United States ex-
ports to meet essential minimum short-term requirements for local
consumption and for the continuation by Hong Kong of mutually
beneficial transshipment or resale of United States commodities to
non-Soviet bloc areas.

merce, and the Director of Defense Mobilization, who accordingly were submitting

Rec-
ommendations contained therein and direct their implementation by appropriate
ex-
ecutive departments and agencies under the coordination of the Secretary
