Suspension Agreement Sugar

Pursuant to Section 734(c) of the Act, we have found that there are exceptional circumstances within the meaning of Section 734(c)(2)(A) of the Act with respect to the amended AD Agreement. We have also found that the amended AD Agreement will completely eliminate the injurious effects of exports of the products concerned to the United States and prevent the removal or undercutting of the price of domestic sugar due to the importation of these products from Mexico, as required by Section 734(c)(1) of the Act. We also found that the amended AD agreement is in the public interest and can be effectively followed up, as required by section 734(d) of the Act. “In principle, the changes have provided some of the raw sugar for U.S. cane refineries, but less sugar at higher prices for U.S. `sinters` like CSC Sugar, which supply food producers directly without further refining imports.” In 2014, the United States was a sugar processor that filed anti-dumping and countervailing complaints against Mexico. The resulting high tariffs severely disrupted trade with Mexico, but the U.S. and Mexican governments negotiated agreements to impose minimum prices and maximum sales of sugar from Mexico, effectively creating a managed trade regime that constrained U.S. sugar prices beyond levels prescribed by Congress. .
