Absent information to the contrary, we intend to continue to treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of this administrative review. 13 The requests for review included certain companies with identical/similar names but different addresses.

For purposes of initiation, we have treated these companies as separate entities. 15 The requests for review included certain companies with duplicate names. We have initiated a review on the correct company names (i.e., Chanthaburi Seafoods Co., Ltd., Thailand Fishery Cold Storage Public Co., Ltd., and Inter-Pacific Marine Products Co., Ltd.), but have not initiated a review on the duplicate names (i.e., Chantaburi Seafood Co., Ltd., Fishery Cold Storage Public, and International Pacific Marine Products,) based on information obtained in the 2006–2007 administrative review.

Respondent Selection Section 777A(c)(1) of the Act directs the Department to calculate individual dumping margins for each known exporter and producer of the subject merchandise. Where it is not practicable to examine all known producers/ exporters of subject merchandise because of the large number of such companies, section 777A(c)(2) of the Act permits the Department to limit its examination to either: (1) a sample of exporters, producers or types of products that is statistically valid based on the information available at the time of selection; or (2) exporters and producers accounting for the largest volume of subject merchandise from the exporting country that can be reasonably examined. Due to the large number of firms requested for these administrative reviews and the resulting administrative burden to review each company for which a request has been made, the Department is exercising its authority to limit the number of respondents selected for review. See section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. In selecting the respondents for individual review, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the POR.

SUMMARY: ITA announces the availability of funding for the FY 2009 Market Development Cooperator Program (MDCP).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Trade associations, State departments of trade, and other non-profit industry organizations are eligible to apply for an MDCP award. These organizations are particularly effective in reaching smalland medium-size enterprises (SMEs). Through MDCP cooperative agreements the Department provides technical and financial assistance that these organizations match. Organizations compete for a limited number of MDCP awards. (The program’s eligibility requirements effectively preclude applications from individuals and private companies.) MDCP awards help to underwrite the start-up costs of new ventures that organizations are often reluctant to undertake without Federal government support. MDCP strengthens the competitiveness of U.S. industry by fostering projects that result in increased exports and/or market share for non-agricultural goods and services produced in the United States. As an active partner, ITA will, as appropriate, guide and assist organizations in achieving project objectives. ITA encourages organizations to propose projects that (1) best strengthen their industry through market development; and (2) leverage the partnership between the organization and ITA. 1. Definitions Several definitions are provided in section VIII of the Federal Funding Opportunity notice (FFO), which is available at http://www.trade.gov/mdcp. 2. Examples of Project Activity Applicants should propose market development activities tailored to strengthen the competitiveness of the relevant U.S. industry.
