SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) is responsible for the compilation of the U.S. international transactions accounts (ITA’s), which it publishes quarterly in news releases, on its Web site, and in its monthly journal, the Survey of Current Business. These accounts provide a statistical summary of all U.S. international transactions and, as such, are one of the major statistical products of BEA. They are used extensively by both government and private organizations for national and international economic policy formulation and for analytical purposes. The information collected in this survey is used to develop the ‘‘private remittances’’ portion of the ITA’s. Without this information, an integral component of the ITA’s would be omitted. No other Government agency collects comprehensive data on private institutional remittances of funds to foreign countries.

The information is collected on a quarterly basis from organizations remitting $1 million or more each year and annually for organizations remitting at least $100,000 but less than $1 million each year. Organizations with remittances of less than $100,000 in the year covered by the report are exempt from reporting. The survey is voluntary. BEA proposes the following changes to the form and instructions: (1) Increase the reporting threshold from $25,000 to $100,000; (2) request that organizations only report by country if amounts remitted to a particular country exceed $10,000; and (3) update the list of pre-printed countries on the form and add space for respondents to enter information on remittances to countries that do not appear on the pre-printed list.

SUMMARY: In response to timely requests, the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on canned pineapple fruit (CPF) from Thailand for the period of review (POR) July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006. The review covers two respondents, Vita Food Factory (1989) Ltd. (Vita) and Tropical Food Industries Co. Ltd. (Trofco). The domestic interested party for this proceeding is Maui Pineapple Company Ltd. (petitioner). The Department preliminarily determines that Vita and Trofco made sales to the United States at less than normal value (NV). If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this administrative review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on entries of Vita’s and Trofco’s merchandise during the POR. The preliminary results are listed below in the section titled ‘‘Preliminary Results of Review.’’ EFFECTIVE DATE: August 8, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Myrna Lobo or Douglas Kirby, 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) 482–2371 or (202) 482– 3782, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background The Department published the antidumping duty order on CPF from Thailand on July 18, 1995. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order and Amended Final Determination: Canned Pineapple Fruit from Thailand, 60 FR 36775 (July 18, 1995) (Antidumping Duty Order). On July 3, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ of the antidumping duty order on CPF from Thailand. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 37890 (July 3, 2006). PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Department received a request for review from Vita, by the July 31, 2006 deadline and therefore, on August 30, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on CPF from Thailand for Vita. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 51573 (August 30, 2006). Trofco also submitted a request for review, but Trofco’s review request was not received by the Department until after the deadline for requesting an administrative review. However, the record of this proceeding shows that if not for an error by the express delivery service, Trofco’s review request would have been received by the Department on or before the July 31, 2006 deadline. Therefore, on October 10, 2006 the Department initiated a review for Trofco. For further discussion on this issue, see Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Canned Pineapple Fruit from Thailand, 71 FR 59430 (October 10, 2006). On August 14, 2006, the Department issued sections A through E of the questionnaire to Vita.1 Vita submitted its section A response on September 12, 2006, and submitted its sections B through D response on September 27, 2006. The Department issued a sections A through D supplemental questionnaire on February 6, 2007, and Vita responded on February 20, 2007. On April 13, 2007, the Department issued a second sections A through D supplemental questionnaire to Vita; Vita responded on April 25, 2007. Finally, on May 18, 2007, the Department issued a third sections A through D supplemental questionnaire to Vita, and Vita responded on May 30, 2007. On October 12, 2006, the Department issued sections A through E of the questionnaire to Trofco. Trofco submitted its section A questionnaire response on October 17, 2006, and submitted its responses to sections B and C on November 15, 2006. The Department issued a sections A through C supplemental questionnaire on 1 Section A of the questionnaire requests general information concerning a company’s corporate structure and business practices, the merchandise under investigation that it sells, and the manner in which it sells that merchandise in all of its markets. Section B requests a complete listing of all home market sales, or, if the home market is not viable, of sales in the most appropriate third-country market (this section is not applicable to respondents in non-market economy cases). Section C requests a complete listing of U.S. sales. Section D requests information on the cost of production of the foreign like product and the constructed value of the merchandise under investigation. Section E requests information on further manufacturing. E:\FR\FM\08AUN1.SGM 08AUN1
