Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), Commerce conducted expedited sunset reviews of the AD and CVD Agreements. As a result of its reviews, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752(b) and (c) of the Act, Commerce determined that termination of the AD and CVD Agreements and suspended AD and CVD investigations on sugar from Mexico would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and countervailable subsidies. Therefore, Commerce notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margin likely to prevail and the net countervailable subsidy rates likely to prevail should the AD and CVD Agreements be terminated, in accordance with sections 752(b)(3) and (c)(3) of the Act.4 On April 24, 2020, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, the ITC published its determination that termination of the suspended AD and CVD duty investigations on sugar from Mexico would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752(a) of the Act.5 2 See ASC’s Letter, ‘‘Sugar from Mexico: Notice of Intent to Participate’’, dated December 18, 2019; see also Imperial Sugar’s Letter, ‘‘Sugar from Mexico, Case Nos.
