SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The U.S. and Mexican sugar markets have become increasingly 
integrated since duty-free, quota-free trade in sugar was fully 
implemented on January 1, 2008 under the North American Free Trade 
Agreement (NAFTA). FAS is withdrawing this proposed rule because market 
conditions have changed. FAS intends to publish an advance notice of 
proposed rulemaking concerning trade under the Sugar Re-Export Program 
with Mexico, requesting comments on revisions to the regulation, in 
particular with respect to issues not fully addressed in previous 
comments on the proposed rule that is being withdrawn by this action.

    Signed at Washington, DC on the 26th of April, 2010.
