AGENCY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has completed its administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on aluminum extrusions from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) for the January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014 period of review (POR). We have determined that mandatory respondents Jangho and Zhongya received countervailable subsidies during the POR. The final net subsidies are listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Administrative Review.’’ SUMMARY: DATES: Effective December 20, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Davina Friedmann or Tyler Weinhold, AD/CVD Operations, Office VI, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–0698 or (202) 482–1121, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background The Department selected Jangho 1 and Zhongya 2 as mandatory respondents in this administrative review of the CVD order 3 on aluminum extrusions from 1 For purposes of this administrative review, ‘‘Jangho’’ refers to the crossed-owned entities consisting of the following members and affiliates of the Jangho Group: Guangzhou Jangho Curtain Wall System Engineering Co., Ltd.; Guangzhou Jangho’s parent company, Jangho Group Co., Ltd.; Jangho Group Company’s corporate parent, Beijing Jiangheyuan Holding Com., Ltd.; and Jangho Group Company’s producer subsidiaries, Beijing Jangho Curtain Wall System Engineering Co., Ltd., Shanghai Jangho Curtain Wall System Engineering Co., Ltd., and Chengdu Jangho Curtain Wall System Engineering Co., Ltd. As stated above, we have used ‘‘Jangho’’ to refer to the cross-owned entities to which we will assign a subsidy rate. See ‘‘Final Results of Administrative Review,’’ below. We have used ‘‘the Jangho Group’’ and ‘‘Jangho Group’’ to refer to the corporate group consisting of Jangho Group Company and its subsidiaries (i.e., not including Beijing Jiangheyuan Holding Com., Ltd. and Jangho Group Company’s other corporate parent, Xinjiang Jianghe Huizhong Equity Investment Limited Partnership). We have used ‘‘the Jangho companies,’’ to refer to the members of the Jangho Group as well as Beijing Jiangheyuan Holding Com., Ltd.and Xinjiang Jianghe Huizhong Equity Investment Limited Partnership. Further, Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd. is an affiliated Hong Kong reseller/trading company and member of the Jangho Group. For these final results, we are treating Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd. as a Hong Kong, or non-PRC, company, and have not attributed any subsidies to Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd., consistent with 19 CFR 351.525(b) (7). Any shipments of subject merchandise to the United States by Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd. will be subject to the Department’s cash deposit requirements. For entries of subject merchandise exported by Jangho Curtain Wall Hong Kong Ltd., the Department intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits according to the appropriate rates assigned to the producer, or the all-others rate if the producer does not have its own assigned cash deposit rate. 2 For purposes of the final results of this administrative review, ‘‘Zhongya’’ refers to the following companies: Guangdong Zhongya Aluminium Company Limited, Zhaoqing New Zhongya Aluminum Co., Ltd., New Zhongya Aluminum Factory, Karlton Aluminum Company Ltd., and Zhongya Shaped Aluminum (HK) Holding Limited (collectively, ‘‘Zhongya’’). ‘‘Zhongya’’ includes companies selected as mandatory respondents, as well as companies that responded to the Department’s initial questionnaire as a group by submitting a letter indicating that they would not be participating in this administrative review. See ‘‘Application of Adverse Facts Available to Non-Cooperative Mandatory Respondent Zhongya’’ for more information. We inadvertently omitted Zhongya Shaped Aluminum (HK) Holding Limited from the list of companies included in ‘‘Zhongya’’ in the Preliminary Results, but did include all companies in the Department’s draft cash deposit and liquidation instructions, which were released to interested parties for comment. We clarify that it was the Department’s intent to include Zhongya Shaped Aluminum (HK) Holding Limited in ‘‘Zhongya.’’ No parties commented in case briefs on the Department’s treatment of these companies as a group in the Preliminary Results or on the Department’s draft instructions. Use of ‘‘Zhongya’’ to refer to these companies collectively does not denote a cross-ownership determination with respect to any of these companies in this administrative review. 3 See Aluminum Extrusions from the People’s Republic of China: Countervailing Duty Order, 76 FR 30653 (May 26, 2011) (Order).
