The Department has determined that completion of the final results of this review within the original time period (i.e., by December 6, 2011) is not practicable. In the Preliminary Results, the Department investigated several new subsidy programs, and the Department requires more time to consider the comments of interested parties concerning the countervailability of these programs. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final results to not later than February 4, 2012, which is 180 days from the date of publication of the Preliminary Results, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
