The signed and electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Scope of the Order The product covered by the Order is aluminum foil from China. For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see Appendix I. Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(l)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we preliminarily determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.9 For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Commerce notes that, in making these findings, it relied, in part, on facts available and, because it finds that the Government of China did not act to the best of its ability to respond to Commerce’s requests for information, it drew an adverse inference where appropriate in selecting from among the facts otherwise available. For further information, see ‘‘Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Adverse Inferences’’ in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Rescission of Administrative Review, in Part Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party or parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the publication date of the notice of initiation of the requested review. As noted above, all requests for administrative review were timely withdrawn for certain companies. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this administrative review with respect to: Alcha International Holdings Limited; Baotou Alcha Aluminum Co., Ltd.; Granges Aluminum (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.; Guangxi Baise Xinghe Aluminum Industry Co., Ltd.; Huafon Nikkei Aluminium Corporation; Jiangsu Alcha Aluminum Co., Ltd.; Jiangyin Dolphin 9 See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.
