[Investigation Nos. 731-TA-1034-1035 (Final)]

In the Matter of Certain Color Television Receivers From China 
and Malaysia; Notice of Commission Determination Not To Conduct a 
Portion of the Hearing in Camera

AGENCY: International Trade Commission.

ACTION: Commission determination not to close any part of the hearing 
to the public.


SUMMARY: The Commission has determined to deny the request of several 
producers and importers of certain color television receivers from 
China and Malaysia (''respondents'') to conduct a portion of its 
hearing in the above-captioned investigations scheduled for April 15, 
2004, in camera. See Commission rules 201.13 and 201.36(b)(4) (19 CFR 
201.13 and 201.36(b)(4)).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Marc A. Bernstein, Office of General 
Counsel, U.S. International Trade Commission, telephone 202-205-3087. 
Hearing-impaired individuals are advised that information on this 
matter may be obtained by contacting the Commission's TDD terminal on 

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission believes it should conduct 
its business in public in all but the most unusual circumstances. The 
Commission has determined that, in light of the nature of these 
proceedings, it will be able to assess adequately all arguments raised 
by respondents without resorting to the extraordinary measure of an in 
camera hearing. Accordingly, the Commission has determined that the 
public interest would be best served by a hearing that is entirely open 
to the public. See 19 CFR 201.36(c)(1).

    Authority: This notice is provided pursuant to Commission Rule 
201.35(b) (19 CFR 201.35(b)).

    Issued: April 13, 2004.

    By order of the Commission.
Marilyn R. Abbott,
Secretary to the Commission.
