SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to Additional U.S. Note 5 to 
Chapter 17 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS), the United States maintains WTO TRQs for imports of raw cane 
and refined sugar. Section 404(d)(3) of the Uruguay Round Agreements 
Act (19 U.S.C. 3601(d)(3)) authorizes the President to allocate the in-
quota quantity of a TRQ for any agricultural product among supplying 
countries or customs areas. The President delegated this authority to 
the United States Trade Representative under Presidential Proclamation 
6763 (60 FR 1007).
    On June 29, 2018, the Secretary of Agriculture established the FY 
2019 TRQ for imported raw cane sugar at the minimum to which the United 
States committed to pursuant to the World Trade Organization Uruguay 
Round Agreements (1,117,195 metric tons raw value (MTRV)). On July 18, 
2018, USTR provided notice of country-by-country allocations of the FY 
2019 in-quota quantity of the WTO TRQ for imported raw cane sugar. 
Based on consultation with quota holders, USTR has determined to 
reallocate 100,071 MTRV of the original TRQ quantity from those 
countries that have stated they do not plan to fill their FY 2019 
allocated raw cane sugar quantities. USTR is allocating the 100,071 
MTRV to the following countries in the amounts specified below:
