Shared Data BEA will provide the Census Bureau with data from its surveys of U.S. direct investment abroad, foreign direct investment in the United States, and U.S. international services transactions. It is anticipated that the Census Bureau will share data collected from the Survey of Industrial Research and Development, the 2002 Economic Census, and its Business Register with BEA. The Census Bureau will issue a separate notice addressing this issue. The shared BEA and Census Bureau data will be used for statistical purposes only. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Statistical Purposes for the Shared Data Data collected in BEA’s surveys of direct investment are used to develop estimates of the financing and operations of U.S. parent companies, their foreign affiliates, and U.S. affiliates of foreign companies, and estimates of transactions and positions between parents and affiliates. Data collected in BEA’s surveys of U.S. international services transactions are used to develop estimates of services transactions between U.S. persons (in a broad legal sense, including companies) and foreign persons. These estimates are published in the Survey of Current Business, BEA’s monthly journal; in other BEA publications; and on BEA’s Web site at http://www.bea.gov/. All data are collected under sections 3101– 3108, of Title 22, U.S.C. The data sets created by linking these data with the data from the abovedesignated Census Bureau surveys and Business Register will be used for several exclusively statistical purposes by both agencies, such as for evaluating the feasibility of developing state-level estimates of U.S. services exports, and producing aggregate tabulations of data for the NSF that augment and improve information on international aspects of R&D performance, funding, and related economic activity. Data Access and Confidentiality Title 22, U.S.C. 3104 protects the confidentiality of the data to be provided by BEA to the Census Bureau. The data may be seen only by persons sworn to uphold the confidentiality of the information. Access to the shared data will be restricted to specifically authorized personnel and will be provided for statistical purposes only. Any results of this research are subject to BEA disclosure protection. All Census Bureau employees with access to these data will become BEA Special VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:52 Apr 13, 2007 Jkt 211001 Sworn Employees—meaning that they, under penalty of law, must uphold the data’s confidentiality. Selected NSF employees will provide BEA with expertise on various aspects of R&D performance and funding of companies that provide data to BEA. These NSF consultants assisting with the work at the BEA also will become BEA Special Sworn Employees. No confidential data will be provided to the NSF. Rosemary D.

SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of Commerce (the Department) and the International Trade Commission (ITC) that revocation of the antidumping duty order on canned pineapple fruit (CPF) from Thailand would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department is publishing notice of continuation of this antidumping duty order. EFFECTIVE DATE: April 16, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Martha Douthit or Maureen Flannery, AD/CVD Operations, Office 6, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–5050 or (202) 482– 3020, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background The Department initiated and the ITC instituted sunset reviews of the antidumping duty order on CPF from Thailand, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews; 71 FR 16551 (April 3, 2006), and Institution of a five-year review concerning the antidumping duty order on canned pineapple fruit from Thailand; 71 FR 16585 (April 3, 2006). As a result of its review, the Department found that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail were the order to be revoked. See Canned Pineapple Fruit from Thailand; Final Results of the Full Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order; 72 FR 9921 (March 6, 2007). On April 4, 2007, the ITC determined, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty order on canned pineapple fruit from Thailand would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Canned Pineapple Fruit from PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18961 Thailand; 72 FR 16384 (April 4, 2007), and USITC Publication 3911 (March 2007), (Inv. No. 731–TA–706) (Second Review). Scope of the Order The product covered by the order is CPF, defined as pineapple processed and/or prepared into various product forms, including rings, pieces, chunks, tidbits, and crushed pineapple, that is packed and cooked in metal cans with either pineapple juice or sugar syrup added. Imports of canned pineapple fruit are currently classifiable under subheadings 2008.20.0010 and 2008.20.0090 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). HTSUS 2008.20.0010 covers canned pineapple fruit packed in a sugar–based syrup; HTSUS 2008.20.0090 covers canned pineapple fruit packed without added sugar (i.e., juice–packed). The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description of the merchandise covered by this order is dispositive Continuation of Order As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping duty order on canned pineapple fruit from Thailand. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of continuation of this order will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this Notice of Continuation. Pursuant to sections 751(c)(2) and 751(c)(6)(A) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of this order not later than March 2012. This five-year (sunset) review and this notice are in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: April 10, 2007. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc. E7–7175 Filed 4–13–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S E:\FR\FM\16APN1.SGM 16APN1
