In accordance with section 351.213(b) of the regulations, an interested party as defined by section 771(9) of the Act, may request in writing that the Secretary conduct an administrative review. For both antidumping and countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for which it is requesting a review, and the requesting party must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular producers or exporters.2 If the interested party intends for the Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which were produced in more than one country of origin and each country of origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must state specifically, on an order-byorder basis, which exporter(s) the request is intended to cover. Please note that, for any party the Department was unable to locate in prior segments, the Department will not accept a request for an administrative review of that party absent new information as to the party’s location. Moreover, if the interested party who files a request for review is unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it requested the review, the interested party must provide an explanation of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same time it files its request for review, 2 If the review request involves a non-market economy and the parties subject to the review request do not qualify for separate rates, all other exporters of subject merchandise from the nonmarket economy country who do not have a separate rate will be covered by the review as part of the single entity of which the named firms are a part.

As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), the Department has clarified its practice with respect to the collection of final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise subject to antidumping findings and orders. See also the Import Administration Web site at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov. Six copies of the request should be submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Commercial Setting India: With the rapid growth of its economy, demand for energy in India far exceeds its growth in supply. Rising energy prices, worsening pollution problems, and energy security risks have created a critical need for investments in clean energy. The Government of India has prioritized the development of renewable energy. The following factors support the growth of the Indian renewables sector: the large demand-supply gap in electricity; abundant renewable energy resources (solar, wind, biomass, and hydro); low gestation periods for establishing renewables projects; conducive government policies; availability of numerous financing options for capital equipment; and increasing industry awareness of the benefits of environmental responsibility. The market in India for renewable energy is estimated to be worth $500 million, and is growing at an annual rate of 15 percent, creating strong and diverse business prospects for U.S. renewable energy companies. As the seat of the national government, New Delhi is also the principal end-user of clean energy technology fulfilling the Government of India’s directives on nation-wide deployment of renewables. In many cases, the Government of India provides incentives to promote the installation of renewable energy generation projects. New Delhi is also one of India’s largest metropolitan areas and is in dire need of power generation and environmental quality improvements. The city’s size makes it an attractive market for large investments in clean energy projects from solid and liquid wastes, the utilization of which for the purposes of VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:13 Feb 01, 2007 Jkt 211001 energy production is a key national priority. Chennai is the capital of Tamil Nadu, and in addition to being one of the top five Indian states in terms of foreign direct investment, it has the distinction of being a leader in wind energy. The state has also taken a lead role in India in promoting solar air heating technology. Taking advantage of the state government’s investments in renewable energy, India’s first-of-its kind special economic zone (SEZ) for manufacturing and testing of nonconventional energy equipment is set to open soon in Chennai. The project is expected to attract an investment of $65–$90 million over the next four years and will encompass over 1,000 acres. Chennai is also the location of the Center for Wind Energy Technology, a research institute active in all aspects of wind energy. China: Due to rapidly increasing energy demand and the desire to expand the use of non-fossil fuels, the Chinese government is targeting the development of clean energy technologies in its current 11th Five Year Plan. Emphasized sectors include clean coal technologies, wind power, solar power, and biomass. Beijing is unique in China in that it is a city with provincial status, enabling its municipal government to approve independent foreign investment projects up to a value of $30 million. This has positioned Beijing as an attractive location for foreign investment in China. As the national capital, Beijing offers unparalleled access to meet with Chinese policymakers. There is a strong market for clean energy technologies in Beijing, due to its size and economic importance. The selection of the city as the host of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games has spurred substantial government investment in projects that improve environmental quality. Nanjing (population 5,000,000), a few hours from Shanghai along the Yangtze River, is one of China’s most developed cities. Power and energy are among the city’s core industries. The city hosts one of China’s largest trade fairs on renewable/clean energy and is currently undertaking a prominent provinciallevel project to create an efficient power plant. The project is intended to achieve energy conservation and efficiency by implementing new technologies, and is rooted in demand-side management familiar to U.S. companies. The utilization of clean, renewable energy and energy efficiency are crucial components of the project. Mission Goals: The Trade Mission’s goal is to facilitate market entry or increased sales into these significant PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5009 markets for U.S. clean technologies firms, as well to assist the mission participants in gaining first-hand market information and access to key government officials and potential business partners. Mission Scenario: In India and China, the International Trade Administration will: • Provide a market briefing highlighting opportunities in the clean technologies sectors. • Schedule one-on-one appointments with potential business partners for each participant. • Provide a venue for the one-on-one appointments and provide interpreters as needed. • Provide networking opportunities with the private and public sectors. • Organize relevant site visits.
