ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On December 19, 2014, the U.S. Department of Commerce signed agreements to suspend antidumping and anti-subsidy investigations of imports of sugar from Mexico. Under this agreement, the Department of Commerce will calculate an export limit for Mexico based on U.S. Department of Agriculture data about U.S. needs for sugar in a given year. Mexico’s export limit is set at 100% of U.S. needs after accounting for U.S. production and imports from countries that are granted access under the tariff-rate quota for sugar.
This agreement was challenged by some segments of the U.S. Industry. Two U.S. sugar interests (AmCane Sugar LLC and Imperial Sugar Company) filed a pair of petitions with the U.S. International Trade Commission on January 8, 2015, requesting that the commission conduct investigations of the suspension agreements.
