E8–670 Filed 1–15–08; 8:45 am] Termination of Five-Year Sunset Review On November 1, 2007, the Department initiated a five-year sunset review of the suspended antidumping investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 72 FR 61861 (November 1, 2007). Because the Department is terminating the 2002 Suspension Agreement, there is no longer a suspended investigation for which to perform a sunset review. Therefore, the Department is terminating the sunset review of the suspended LTFV investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico, effective January 18, 2008. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES the 2002 Suspension Agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the 2002 Suspension Agreement, signatory growers/exporters may withdraw from the agreement upon 90 days written notice to the Department. Therefore, these withdrawals from the 2002 Suspension Agreement become effective on February 24, 2008, or earlier at the Department’s discretion. Virtually all imports of fresh tomatoes from Mexico into the United States are accounted for by those growers/exporters which have withdrawn from the 2002 Suspension Agreement; the few signatories remaining in the 2002 Suspension Agreement will not account for substantially all of the imports of subject merchandise once the withdrawal becomes effective. Accordingly, because the 2002 Suspension Agreement will not cover substantially all imports of fresh tomatoes from Mexico without the participation of the growers/exporters which provided their notice of withdrawal on November 26, 2007, the Department is terminating the 2002 Suspension Agreement, effective January 18, 2008.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) is currently conducting the aligned semi-annual 2005–2006 new shipper review and 2005–2006 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on honey from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). The period of review (‘‘POR’’) for both the new shipper review and administrative review is December 1, 2005, through November 30, 2006. Five respondents reported that they had no exports or sales of the subject merchandise during the POR; therefore, we are preliminarily rescinding our review of these companies. We preliminarily determine that Wuhu Qinshi Tangye Co., Ltd. (‘‘Wuhu Qinshi’’); Jiangsu Light Industry Products Imp & Exp (Group) Corp. (‘‘Jiangsu Light’’); Qinhuangdao Municipal Dafeng Industrial Co., Ltd. (‘‘QMD’’); and Inner Mongolia Altin Bee-Keeping (‘‘IMA’’) have failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of their ability to comply with our requests for information and, as a result, should be assigned a rate based on adverse facts jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:55 Jan 15, 2008 Jkt 214001 available. Additionally, we have preliminarily determined that, because the Department has not calculated antidumping duty margins in this segment of the proceeding, the two separate rate companies in the administrative review will be assigned the separate rate margin from the most recent segment of this proceeding in which such a rate was calculated, which in this case is the less than fair value (‘‘LTFV’’) investigation. Finally, we have preliminarily determined that QHD Sanhai Honey Co., Ltd. (‘‘QHD Sanhai’’), the new shipper respondent, did not make sales of subject merchandise to the United States below normal value. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. We will issue the final results no later than 120 days from the date of publication of this notice.

amended (``the Act''), the Department shall make a final determination

for completion of the final results of this review by 5 days to 125 
days after the date on which the preliminary results were published.
