SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background On September 11, 2012, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published in the Federal Register the final results of the sixth administrative review of the antidumping duty order of frozen warmwater shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (‘‘Vietnam’’).1 On September 17, 2012, the Minh Phu Group,2 Phu Cuong Jostoco Seafood Corporation, Thuan Phuoc Seafoods and Trading Corporation, and UTXI Aquatic Products Processing Corporation, collectively referred to here as ‘‘Vietnamese Respondents,’’ filed timely allegations that the Department made various ministerial errors in the Final Results and requested, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224, that the Department correct the alleged ministerial errors. No other parties in this proceeding submitted comments on the Department’s final margin calculations. Based upon our analysis of the comments and allegations of ministerial errors, we made changes to the antidumping duty margin calculation for Minh Phu Group. Additionally, we made corrections to the exporter company names for the following: (1) UTXI Aquatic Products Processing Corporation; (2) Thuan Phuoc Seafoods and Trading Corporation; and (3) Phu Cuong Jostoco Seafood Corporation. Furthermore, as a result of correcting the clerical errors in the antidumping margin calculation for Minh Phu Group, the antidumping margin for the separate rate respondents was also revised because the separate rate margin was derived from the simple average of the margins of the Minh Phu Group and the Nha Trang Group.3 In the Preliminary Results,4 pursuant to the withdrawal of the request for review of BIM Seafood Joint Stock Company (‘‘BIM Seafood’’), the Department preliminarily rescinded this review with respect to BIM Seafood. Subsequent to the Final Results, the Department discovered that we had inadvertently failed to include the final rescission for BIM Seafood in the Final Results. Therefore, we are also rescinding this review with respect to BIM Seafood. Scope of the Order For a full description of the products covered by the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam, see Memorandum to Paul Piquado, from Christian Marsh, regarding ‘‘Sixth Antidumping Administrative Review of Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Ministerial Error and Correction Memorandum,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (‘‘Ministerial Errors and Correction Memo’’). Amended Final Results The Act defines ‘‘ministerial error’’ as including ‘‘errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other type of unintentional error which the administering authority considers ministerial.’’ 5 After analyzing the Vietnamese Respondents’ comments, we have determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that we made certain ministerial errors in our calculations for the final results with respect to our calculation of freight for the Minh Phu Group and certain typographical errors for various exporter company names.6 Because we have revised the antidumping duty margin for Minh Phu Group, we are also revising the antidumping duty margin for the separate rate respondents because the separate rate margin for those companies was calculated as the simple average margin for Minh Phu Group and Nha Trang Group. In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act, we are amending the final results of the administrative review of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam.

ACTION: Notice. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Mission Description: The U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA) is organizing a Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RE&EE) Trade Policy Mission to Santiago, Chile from April 15–16, 2013. The mission is designed to be led by a senior Department of Commerce official, and will focus on: (1) Creating a policy environment conducive to growth in Chile’s RE&EE market; and (2) introducing U.S. RE&EE exporters to key Chilean Government officials. Mission participants will also be invited to showcase their U.S.-made RE&EE technologies at an important industryspecific trade show following the trade policy mission at their own expense. The RE&EE trade policy mission will promote the competitiveness of U.S. wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, hydropower, waste-to-energy, smart grid, and energy efficiency exporters in a key emerging market and demonstrate U.S. Government support for Chile’s renewable energy goals. The mission supports ITA’s commitments contained in the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Export Initiative (RE4I), which aims to significantly increase U.S. RE&EE exports by the end of 2014, the National Export Initiative time frame. If firms decide to participate in the International Fair of Technologies (IFT) Energy 2013 trade show immediately following the trade mission (April 17– 19, 2013), which is encouraged by the Department, they will be expected to register and pay for their participation in the show separately from their trade policy mission participation fees. Commercial Setting: Chile’s fast growing economy and business friendly environment provide an attractive market for U.S. exporters. The rapidly expanding Chilean economy, which grew 6.1% in 2011, has caused a dramatic increase in the VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:15 Oct 17, 2012 Jkt 229001 country’s energy demand. Estimates indicate that Chile must install an additional 8 gigawatts (GW) of generating capacity by 2020 to meet its growing demand. Currently, Chile is dependent on imported fossil fuels for a large portion of its power generation (imported natural gas accounts for a third of the country’s power capacity). As a result, energy prices have increased along with energy demand, incentivizing the development of the country’s renewable energy resources. In fact, renewable energy technologies are much closer to ‘‘grid parity’’ in Chile than in most markets, enhancing their competitiveness. Chile has a strong and growing energy industry. The country privatized its power sector in 1982, and today, has 70 power generation companies (4 dominant firms), five transmission operators (1 dominant), and 34 distribution companies (4 dominant). In renewable energy, Chile led Latin America in implementing a renewable energy portfolio standard (RPS). By 2011, Chilean utilities were required to produce 5% of their output from renewable energy sources; the quota increases by 0.5% annually from 2015 until 2024. Despite the RPS, renewable energy (aside from large hydropower) contributed just 2.7% of Chile’s power capacity at the end of 2011. As a result, Chile must make a substantial investment in the sector to achieve its goal of 20% renewable energy capacity by 2020. Fortunately, Chile possesses some of the world’s largest potential for renewable energy. By 2011, Chile had installed only 0.198 GW of wind capacity, for example, despite an estimated potential of up to 10 GW. Likewise, Chile has developed only about half its biomass potential and has a small fraction of at least 2 GW of geothermal potential under development. Chile’s solar potential is one of the largest in the world and—like other renewable energy technologies— has been largely undeveloped. Chile’s new National Energy Strategy contains six pillars: Energy efficiency; renewable energy; traditional fossil fuels; smart grid; competition in electricity distribution; and regional electricity distribution. In a speech on ˜ February 28, 2012, President Pinera announced the Government of Chile (GoC) would introduce 100 laws and administrative measures to implement the new strategy. The mission will occur at an opportune time, as Chilean policy makers seek to establish policy to support the growth of renewable energy in their country. By facilitating high- PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 level discussions between U.S. exporters and Chilean officials, the mission will help create a burgeoning export market for U.S. RE&EE companies, substantially increasing U.S. exports to a country whose resource potential and business environment portends significant growth for years to come. ITA’s U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service (US&FCS) at the U.S. Embassy in Santiago reports that U.S. companies are well positioned to meet export orders; and that potential policy incentives could strongly catalyze additional development. Opportunities are expected in the wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, hydropower, and energy efficiency sectors. Several U.S. firms have already made investments in Chile’s renewable energy sector. Mission Goals: The RE&EE trade policy mission will facilitate the development of an export market by supporting the establishment of policy incentives in Chile’s RE&EE market. The mission will combine the policy development and advocacy efforts of a traditional trade policy mission with networking and business outreach opportunities for participating firms.. The delegation will have a unique opportunity to meet government officials, discuss policy concerns, and suggest creative solutions to Chile’s energy challenges. Several topics pertinent to the creation of a thriving renewable energy market will be addressed, including: • Establishment of incentives to help Chile meet the goals of its National Energy Strategy; • Development of interconnection standards and feed-in tariffs that would attract global investment and provide an incentive for development; • Mapping of renewable energy resources; • Strengthening of policy and regulatory cooperation between the United States and Chile; and • Development of local financing institutions to further encourage development. Trade policy mission participants are also encouraged to exhibit at the IFT Energy 2013 trade show immediately following the trade policy mission. Participation in IFT Energy 2013 is not mandatory and firms that exhibit will be expected to make arrangements with the conference organizer separate from their participation in the trade policy mission. Mission Scenario: The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Trade Policy Mission will provide several opportunities for participants to discuss policy challenges E:\FR\FM\18OCN1.SGM 18OCN1

Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: 
Amended Final Results and Partial Final Rescission of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.


DATES: Effective Date: October 18, 2012.

Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-1655.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On September 11, 2012, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published in the Federal Register the final results of the sixth 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order of frozen warmwater 
shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (``Vietnam'').\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist 
Republic of Vietnam: Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77 FR 55800 (September 11, 
2012) (``Final Results'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On September 17, 2012, the Minh Phu Group,\2\ Phu Cuong Jostoco 
Seafood Corporation, Thuan Phuoc Seafoods and Trading Corporation, and 
UTXI Aquatic Products Processing Corporation, collectively referred to 
here as ``Vietnamese Respondents,'' filed timely allegations that the 
Department made various ministerial errors in the Final Results and 
requested, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224, that the Department correct the 
alleged ministerial errors. No other parties in this proceeding 
submitted comments on the Department's final margin calculations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Minh Phu Seafood Corporation, Minh Qui Seafood Co., Ltd. and 
Minh Phat Seafood Co., Ltd.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Based upon our analysis of the comments and allegations of 
ministerial errors, we made changes to the antidumping duty margin 
calculation for Minh Phu Group. Additionally, we made corrections to 
the exporter company names for the following: (1) UTXI Aquatic Products 
Processing Corporation; (2) Thuan Phuoc Seafoods and Trading 
Corporation; and (3) Phu Cuong Jostoco Seafood Corporation. 
Furthermore, as a result of correcting the clerical errors in the 
antidumping margin calculation for Minh Phu Group, the antidumping 
margin for the separate rate respondents was also revised because the 
separate rate margin was derived from the simple average of the margins 
of the Minh Phu Group and the Nha Trang Group.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Nha Trang Seaproduct Company, NT Seafoods Corporation, 
Nhatrang Seafoods--F89 Joint Stock Company, and NTSF Seafoods Joint 
Stock Company.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the Preliminary Results,\4\ pursuant to the withdrawal of the 
request for review of BIM Seafood Joint Stock Company (``BIM 
Seafood''), the Department preliminarily rescinded this review with 
respect to BIM Seafood. Subsequent to the Final Results, the Department 
discovered that we had inadvertently failed to include the final 
rescission for BIM Seafood in the Final Results. Therefore, we are also 
rescinding this review with respect to BIM Seafood.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist 
Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Results of Administrative Review, 
77 FR 13547 (March 7, 2012) (``Preliminary Results'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    For a full description of the products covered by the antidumping 
duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam, see 
Memorandum to Paul Piquado, from Christian Marsh, regarding ``Sixth 
Antidumping Administrative Review of Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Ministerial Error and Correction 
Memorandum,'' dated concurrently with this notice (``Ministerial Errors 
and Correction Memo'').

Amended Final Results

    The Act defines ``ministerial error'' as including ``errors in 
addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors 
resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any 
other type of unintentional error which the administering authority 
considers ministerial.'' \5\ After analyzing the Vietnamese 
Respondents' comments, we have determined, in accordance with section 
751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that we made certain 
ministerial errors in our calculations for the final results with 
respect to our calculation of freight for the Minh Phu Group and 
certain typographical errors for various exporter company names.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``the Act'').
    \6\ See Ministerial Errors and Correction Memo.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because we have revised the antidumping duty margin for Minh Phu 
Group, we are also revising the antidumping duty margin for the 
separate rate respondents because the separate rate margin for those 
companies was calculated as the simple average margin for Minh Phu 
Group and Nha Trang Group. In accordance with section 751(h) of the 
Act, we are amending the final results of the administrative review of 
certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam.
    The dumping margins for the period of review for these amended 
final results are as follows:
