Methodology

    We conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of

programs found to be countervailable during the POR, we find that there

specific.\5\ For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding 
benefit; and, section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we determine the following 
net countervailable subsidy rate for Borusan, for the period January 1, 
2015, through December 31, 2015:

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2), Commerce intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border
