The Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the United States Executive Directors of the multilateral development banks to use the voice and vote of the United States in the respective banks—
to oppose financing by the respective bank of projects which produce, or will produce, commodities, products, or minerals for export if—
support from financial sources other than multilateral development banks does not accompany such financing; and
to oppose financing by the respective bank for production of a commodity, product, or mineral for export which—
is likely to be in surplus on world markets at the time such production begins; and
when exported, is likely to cause injury to United States producers within the meaning of Article 15 of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures referred to in subparagraph (A).
