SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background We received no comments from interested parties on our Preliminary Results which published on February 27, 2014. The Department conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order is laminated woven sacks. Laminated woven sacks are bags or sacks consisting of one or more plies of fabric consisting of woven polypropylene strip and/or woven polyethylene strip, regardless of the width of the strip; with or without an extrusion coating of polypropylene and/or polyethylene on one or both sides of the fabric; laminated by any method either to an exterior ply of plastic film such as biaxially-oriented polypropylene (‘‘BOPP’’) or to an exterior ply of paper that is suitable for high quality print graphics; 2 printed with three colors or more in register; with or without lining; whether or not closed on one end; whether or not in roll form (including sheets, lay-flat 1 See Laminated Woven Sacks From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2012– 2013, 79 FR 11075 (February 27, 2014) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). 2 ‘‘Paper suitable for high quality print graphics,’’ as used herein, means paper having an ISO brightness of 82 or higher and a Sheffield Smoothness of 250 or less.

Laminated woven sacks are typically used for retail packaging of consumer goods such as pet foods and bird seed. Effective July 1, 2007, laminated woven sacks are classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings 6305.33.0050 and 6305.33.0080. Laminated woven sacks were previously classifiable under HTSUS subheading 6305.33.0020. If entered with plastic coating on both sides of the fabric consisting of woven polypropylene strip and/or woven polyethylene strip, laminated woven sacks may be classifiable under HTSUS subheadings 3923.21.0080, 3923.21.0095, and 3923.29.0000. If entered not closed on one end or in roll form (including sheets, lay-flat tubing, and sleeves), laminated woven sacks may be classifiable under other HTSUS subheadings including 3917.39.0050, 3921.90.1100, 3921.90.1500, and 5903.90.2500. If the polypropylene strips and/or polyethylene strips making up the fabric measure more than 5 millimeters in width, laminated woven sacks may be classifiable under other HTSUS subheadings including 4601.99.0500, 4601.99.9000, and 4602.90.0000. Although HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Preliminary Results Upon initiation of the administrative review, we provided the opportunity for all companies upon which the review was initiated to submit either a ‘‘no shipment’’ certification or the separate rate application or certification.3 Of the nine companies under review, three companies had a separate rate from a prior segment 4 but did not file a ‘‘no shipment’’ certification or a separate rate certification on the record of this review.5 Consequently, these three 3 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation, in Part, 78 FR 60834, 60836 (October 2, 2013). 4 These three companies are: Cangnan Color Make the Bag, Jiangsu Hotsun Plastics, and Polywell Industrial Co. We note that these three companies received their separate rates in the underlying investigation and have not been under review since the investigation. See Laminated Woven Sacks from the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Partial Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 73 FR 35646, 35648 (June 24, 2008). 5 The Department notes that a company’s eligibility for a separate rate necessarily requires reviewable entries from that company during the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:36 Jun 13, 2014 Jkt 232001 companies have not provided any documentation supporting their continued eligibility for a separate rate. Thus, we now consider them to be part of the PRC-wide entity, pursuant to our practice.6 The other six companies under review in this segment did not have a separate rate from a prior segment of the proceeding. Because these companies neither established their eligibility for a separate rate through a separate rate application nor filed ‘‘no shipment’’ certifications, the Department will continue to treat these six companies as part of the PRC-wide entity.7 PRC-Wide Entity Rate In the Preliminary Results, we stated that the Department conducted a proceeding pursuant to section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (‘‘URAA’’) regarding the antidumping and countervailing duty investigations of laminated woven sacks.8 Based on relevant period.

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to the administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3).

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Mission Description The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, is organizing an education mission to El Salvador and Honduras with an optional stop to Nicaragua. Department of Commerce is partnering with the Department of State’s EducationUSA Advising Centers. This trade mission is designed to be led by a senior Department of Commerce official and the emphasis will be on U.S. higher education, focusing on, in order of importance, intensive English language programs, community colleges, summer, undergraduate and graduate programs. Summer programs seeking to participate should be appropriately accredited by an accreditation body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Intensive English language programs seeking to participate should be accredited by the Commission on English Language Programs Accreditation (CEA) or appropriately accredited by an accreditation body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Community colleges, undergraduate and graduate programs seeking to participate should be accredited by a recognized accreditation body listed in Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) or Accrediting Council for Education and Training (ACCET), in the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditors (ASPA), or any accrediting body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. This mission will seek to connect U.S. higher education institutions to potential students and university/ institution partners in Central America. The mission will include student fairs organized by EducationUSA, embassy briefings, site visits, and networking events.

Participating in the Education Mission, rather than traveling to these markets independently, will enhance the participants ability to secure appropriate meetings, especially in light of the high level engagement and support of U.S. education by the U.S. ambassadors in El Salvador and Honduras. Commercial Setting There are several types of opportunities in Central America for U.S. English as a Second Language programs, summer programs, community colleges, and U.S. universities offering undergraduate as well as graduate programs. In March 2011, President Obama launched ‘‘100,000 Strong in the Americas’’ to increase educational exchanges in the Western Hemisphere. Enhancing education is a key driver in improving socioeconomic indicators in the region. ‘‘100,000 Strong’’ bridges the critical relationship between broader educational opportunity and greater regional prosperity. Expanding study abroad opportunities for students, our future leaders and innovators, strengthens bi-national relations and better prepares young people for the 21st century global workforce. The goal of this initiative is to have 100,000 students moving in each direction annually by 2020. Currently, 45,000 U.S. students study in Latin America and the Caribbean and 68,000 Latin American and Caribbean students study in the United States each year. The initiative seeks to more than double these numbers in less than ten years.1 The Western Hemisphere represents a thriving market of nearly one billion people. Approximately 40 percent of U.S. exports go to our Latin American and Caribbean neighbors, and Latin American exports to the United States are even higher. The middle class in Latin America has grown by 50 million in the last decade alone. President Obama believes that the Americas can become the most competitive region in the world. To accomplish this goal, we need to develop the skills to reach across borders to new markets, research, and opportunities. The mission supports the Administration’s Look South initiative, which encourages companies to explore opportunities in the United States’ 11 free trade agreement partner countries in Latin America.

``Department'') published the Preliminary Results \1\ of the 2012-2013 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on laminated woven 
sacks (``sacks'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). The 
period of review (``POR'') is August 1, 2012, through July 31, 2013. We 
gave interested parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary 
Results, but we received none. The final weighted-average dumping 
margin for the PRC-wide entity is listed in the ``Final Results of 
Review'' section below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    We received no comments from interested parties on our Preliminary 
Results which published on February 27, 2014. The Department conducted 
this administrative review in accordance with section 751(a) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'').

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is laminated woven sacks. 
Laminated woven sacks are bags or sacks consisting of one or more plies 
of fabric consisting of woven polypropylene strip and/or woven 
polyethylene strip, regardless of the width of the strip; with or 
without an extrusion coating of polypropylene and/or polyethylene on 
one or both sides of the fabric; laminated by any method either to an 
exterior ply of plastic film such as biaxially-oriented polypropylene 
(``BOPP'') or to an exterior ply of paper that is suitable for high 
quality print graphics; \2\ printed with three colors or more in 
register; with or without lining; whether or not closed on one end; 
whether or not in roll form (including sheets, lay-flat

[[Page 34286]]

tubing, and sleeves); with or without handles; with or without special 
closing features; not exceeding one kilogram in weight. Laminated woven 
sacks are typically used for retail packaging of consumer goods such as 
pet foods and bird seed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ ``Paper suitable for high quality print graphics,'' as used 
herein, means paper having an ISO brightness of 82 or higher and a 
Sheffield Smoothness of 250 or less. Coated free sheet is an example 
of a paper suitable for high quality print graphics.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Effective July 1, 2007, laminated woven sacks are classifiable 
under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') 
subheadings 6305.33.0050 and 6305.33.0080. Laminated woven sacks were 
previously classifiable under HTSUS subheading 6305.33.0020. If entered 
with plastic coating on both sides of the fabric consisting of woven 
polypropylene strip and/or woven polyethylene strip, laminated woven 
sacks may be classifiable under HTSUS subheadings 3923.21.0080, 
3923.21.0095, and 3923.29.0000. If entered not closed on one end or in 
roll form (including sheets, lay-flat tubing, and sleeves), laminated 
woven sacks may be classifiable under other HTSUS subheadings including 
3917.39.0050, 3921.90.1100, 3921.90.1500, and 5903.90.2500. If the 
polypropylene strips and/or polyethylene strips making up the fabric 
measure more than 5 millimeters in width, laminated woven sacks may be 
classifiable under other HTSUS subheadings including 4601.99.0500, 
4601.99.9000, and 4602.90.0000. Although HTSUS subheadings are provided 
for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
scope of the order is dispositive.

Preliminary Results

    Upon initiation of the administrative review, we provided the 
opportunity for all companies upon which the review was initiated to 
submit either a ``no shipment'' certification or the separate rate 
application or certification.\3\ Of the nine companies under review, 
three companies had a separate rate from a prior segment \4\ but did 
not file a ``no shipment'' certification or a separate rate 
certification on the record of this review.\5\ Consequently, these 
three companies have not provided any documentation supporting their 
continued eligibility for a separate rate. Thus, we now consider them 
to be part of the PRC-wide entity, pursuant to our practice.\6\ The 
other six companies under review in this segment did not have a 
separate rate from a prior segment of the proceeding. Because these 
companies neither established their eligibility for a separate rate 
through a separate rate application nor filed ``no shipment'' 
certifications, the Department will continue to treat these six 
companies as part of the PRC-wide entity.\7\

Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation, in Part, 78 FR 
60834, 60836 (October 2, 2013).
    \4\ These three companies are: Cangnan Color Make the Bag, 
Jiangsu Hotsun Plastics, and Polywell Industrial Co. We note that 
these three companies received their separate rates in the 
underlying investigation and have not been under review since the 
investigation. See Laminated Woven Sacks from the People's Republic 
of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and 
Partial Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 73 FR 
35646, 35648 (June 24, 2008).
    \5\ The Department notes that a company's eligibility for a 
separate rate necessarily requires reviewable entries from that 
company during the relevant period. See Certain Frozen Warmwater 
Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 2011-2012, 78 FR 56211

at Comment 11, where the Department stated that ``a company that did 
not export subject merchandise to the United States during the 
relevant period is likewise not eligible for a separate rate, 
because it has no reviewable POR entries and, thus, is not subject 
to the review (including the determination of a separate rate 
status);'' see also Policy Bulletin 5.1: Separate-Rates Practice and

PRC-Wide Entity Rate

    In the Preliminary Results, we stated that the Department conducted 
a proceeding pursuant to section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements 
Act (``URAA'') regarding the antidumping and countervailing duty 
investigations of laminated woven sacks.\8\ Based on certain 
adjustments pursuant to section 777A(f) of the Act, the Department 
revised the PRC-wide entity rate from 91.73 percent, the only rate ever 
determined for the PRC-wide entity in this proceeding \9\ to 47.64 
percent.\10\ Consequently, in these final results, we are assigning a 
rate of 47.64 percent, as revised in the Section 129 Implementation, to 
the PRC-wide entity, which includes all nine companies initiated for 
review.

Assessment

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends 
to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of review. The Department recently 
announced a refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy 
(``NME'') cases.\12\ Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for 
entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by 
companies individually examined during this review, the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate. In 
addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review 
had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that

[[Page 34287]]

exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the NME-wide rate.\13\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above 
that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the 
exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (2) for 
all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to 
be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-
wide rate of 47.64 percent; and (3) for all non-PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporters that 
supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notifications

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to the 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely notification of the 
destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order 
is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the 
terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results and this notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: June 10, 2014.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
