Sec. 4401. Findings

-STATUTE-

The Congress finds that -

(1) The Asia Foundation, a private nonprofit corporation

incorporated in 1954 in the State of California, has long been

active in promoting Asian-American friendship and cooperation and

in lending encouragement and assistance to Asians in their own

efforts to develop more open, more just, and more democratic

societies;

(2) The Asia Foundation's commitment to strengthening

indigenous Asian institutions which further stable national

development, constructive social change, equitable economic

growth, and cooperative international relationships is fully

consistent with and supportive of long-term United States

interests in Asia;

(3) The Asia Foundation, as a private organization, is able to

conduct programs in response to Asian initiatives that would be

difficult or impossible for an official United States

instrumentality, and it is in a position in Asia to respond

quickly and flexibly to meet new opportunities;

(4) in recognition of the valuable contributions of The Asia

Foundation to long-range United States foreign policy interests,

the United States Government has, through a variety of agencies,

provided financial support for The Asia Foundation; and

(5) it is in the interest of the United States, and the further

strengthening of Asian-American friendship and cooperation, to

establish a more permanent mechanism for United States Government

financial support for the ongoing activities of The Asia

Foundation, while preserving the independent character of the

Foundation.

-STATUTE-

(a) The Congress finds that there has been established in the

the world through private sector initiatives, including

activities which promote the individual rights and freedoms

(including internationally recognized human rights) which are

essential to the functioning of democratic institutions;

(2) to facilitate exchanges between United States private

sector groups (especially the two major American political

parties, labor, and business) and democratic groups abroad;

(3) to promote United States nongovernmental participation

(especially through the two major American political parties,

labor, business, and other private sector groups) in democratic

training programs and democratic institution-building abroad;

(4) to strengthen democratic electoral processes abroad through

timely measures in cooperation with indigenous democratic forces;

(5) to support the participation of the two major American

political parties, labor, business, and other United States

private sector groups in fostering cooperation with those abroad

dedicated to the cultural values, institutions, and organizations

of democratic pluralism; and

development in a manner consistent both with the broad concerns

of United States national interests and with the specific
