Subadvised Funds will inform shareholders of the hiring of a new Subadviser within 90 days after the hiring of the new Subadviser pursuant to the Modified Notice and Access Procedures. 5. At all times, at least a majority of the Board will be Independent Trustees, and the selection and nomination of new or additional Independent Trustees will be placed within the discretion of the then-existing Independent Trustees. 6. Independent Legal Counsel, as defined in Rule 0–1(a)(6) under the Act, will be engaged to represent the Independent Trustees. The selection of such counsel will be within the discretion of the then-existing Independent Trustees. 7. Whenever a Subadviser is hired or terminated, the Adviser will provide the Board with information showing the expected impact on the profitability of the Adviser. 8. The Board must evaluate any material conflicts that may be present in a subadvisory arrangement. Specifically, whenever a subadviser change is proposed for a Subadvised Fund (‘‘Subadviser Change’’) or the Board considers an existing Subadvisory Agreement as part of its annual review process (‘‘Subadviser Review’’): (a) The Adviser will provide the Board, to the extent not already being provided pursuant to section 15(c) of the Act, with all relevant information concerning: (i) Any material interest in the proposed new Subadviser, in the case of a Subadviser Change, or the Subadviser in the case of a Subadviser Review, held directly or indirectly by the Adviser or a parent or sister company of the Adviser, and any material impact the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:01 Jul 08, 2021 Jkt 253001 proposed Subadvisory Agreement may have on that interest; (ii) any arrangement or understanding in which the Adviser or any parent or sister company of the Adviser is a participant that (A) may have had a material effect on the proposed Subadviser Change or Subadviser Review, or (B) may be materially affected by the proposed Subadviser Change or Subadviser Review; (iii) any material interest in a Subadviser held directly or indirectly by an officer or Trustee of the Subadvised Fund, or an officer or board member of the Adviser (other than through a pooled investment vehicle not controlled by such person); and (iv) any other information that may be relevant to the Board in evaluating any potential material conflicts of interest in the proposed Subadviser Change or Subadviser Review. (b) the Board, including a majority of the Independent Trustees, will make a separate finding, reflected in the Board minutes, that the Subadviser Change or continuation after Subadviser Review is in the best interests of the Subadvised Fund and its shareholders and, based on the information provided to the Board, does not involve a conflict of interest from which the Adviser, a Subadviser, any officer or Trustee of the Subadvised Fund, or any officer or board member of the Adviser derives an inappropriate advantage. 9. Each Subadvised Fund will disclose in its registration statement the Aggregate Fee Disclosure. 10. In the event that the Commission adopts a rule under the Act providing substantially similar relief to that in the order requested in the Application, the requested order will expire on the effective date of that rule. 11. Any new Subadvisory Agreement or any amendment to an existing Investment Advisory Agreement or Subadvisory Agreement that directly or indirectly results in an increase in the aggregate advisory fee rate payable by the Subadvised Fund will be submitted to the Subadvised Fund’s shareholders for approval. For the Commission, by the Division of Investment Management, under delegated authority. J. Matthew DeLesDernier, Assistant Secretary.

B. Suspension of Action On June 15 and June 17, 2021, the United States reached similar understandings on cooperative frameworks with the EU and the UK, respectively, regarding trade in large civil aircraft and the parties’ WTO disputes. The understandings provide, inter alia, that each party intends to: • Provide any financing to its LCA producer for the production or development of large civil aircraft on market terms.

The two sides will implement the annexed understanding on cooperation on nonmarket economies through the Working Group. • suspend application of countermeasures for a period of five years. To effectuate the suspension of the U.S. countermeasures for the five-year period, the U.S. Trade Representative has determined to terminate the current tariff action and to undertake procedures in advance of the end of the five-year period for the possible reimposition of tariffs under Section 301. In particular, pursuant to sections 307(a)(1) and 301(a)(2)(B) of the Trade Act, the U.S. Trade Representative has determined to terminate the current action, which was first imposed in the notice of October 9, 2019 (84 FR 54245) and modified in subsequent notices, effective July 4, 2021, with respect to goods of the UK, and effective July 11, 2021, with respect to goods of EU member States.

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 U.S. Trade Representative under Presidential Proclamation 6763 (60 FR 1007). On July 9, 2020, the Secretary of Agriculture established the FY 2021 TRQ for imported raw cane sugar at the minimum to which the United States is committed pursuant to the WTO Uruguay Round Agreements (1,117,195 metric tons raw value (MTRV) conversion factor: 1 metric ton = 1.10231125 short tons). On July 22, 2020, USTR provided notice of countryby-country allocations of the FY 2021 in-quota quantity of the WTO TRQ for imported raw cane sugar. See 85 FR 44353. Based on consultation with quota holders, the U.S. Trade Representative has determined to reallocate 76,571 MTRV of the original TRQ quantity from those countries that have stated they do not plan to fill their FY 2021 allocated raw cane sugar quantities.

    For background on the proceedings in this investigation, please see 
prior notices including: Notice of initiation, 84 FR 15028 (April 12, 
2019); notice of determination and action, 84 FR 54245 (October 9,

B. Suspension of Action

    On June 15 and June 17, 2021, the United States reached similar 
understandings on cooperative frameworks with the EU and the UK, 
respectively, regarding trade in large civil aircraft and the parties' 
WTO disputes. The understandings provide, inter alia, that each party 
intends to:
     Provide any financing to its LCA producer for the 
production or development of large civil aircraft on market terms.

[[Page 36314]]

     provide any funding for research and development (R&D) for 
large civil aircraft to its LCA producer through an open and 
transparent process and intends to make the results of fully government 
funded R&D widely available, to the extent permitted by law, and 
intends not to provide R&D funding or other support that is specific, 
to its LCA producer in a way that would cause negative effects to the 
other side.
     collaborate on jointly analyzing and addressing non-market 
practices of third parties that may harm their respective large civil 
aircraft industries. The two sides will implement the annexed 
understanding on cooperation on non-market economies through the 
Working Group.
     suspend application of countermeasures for a period of 
five years.
    To effectuate the suspension of the U.S. countermeasures for the 
five-year period, the U.S. Trade Representative has determined to 
terminate the current tariff action and to undertake procedures in 
advance of the end of the five-year period for the possible re-
imposition of tariffs under Section 301.
    In particular, pursuant to sections 307(a)(1) and 301(a)(2)(B) of 
the Trade Act, the U.S. Trade Representative has determined to 
terminate the current action, which was first imposed in the notice of 
October 9, 2019 (84 FR 54245) and modified in subsequent notices, 
effective July 4, 2021, with respect to goods of the UK, and effective 
July 11, 2021, with respect to goods of EU member States. Pursuant to 
Section 306 of the Trade Act, and in advance of the end of the five-
year suspension period, the U.S. Trade Representative will review 
implementation by the EU and UK of the framework understandings and 
their respective measures related to the matters covered in the LCA 
dispute, and consider a re-imposition of a tariff action under Section 
301.
    The decision of the U.S Trade Representative to effectuate the 
five-year suspension in accordance with the framework understandings 
considers the advice of the interagency Section 301 Committee, advisory 
committees, and public comments received in response to prior notices 
issued in the investigation, and consultations with the domestic 
industry concerned regarding the suspension.
    The Annex to this notice modifies the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States to reflect the suspension of the tariff action. The

    In accordance with section 306 of the Trade Act, in addition to the 
five-year review, the U.S. Trade Representative will monitor 
implementation by the EU and UK of the framework understandings and 
their respective measures related to the matters covered in the LCA 
dispute, including whether the EU or UK provides new financing to an 
LCA producer for the production or development of LCA that is not on 
market terms. If USTR considers that the implementation of the 
framework understandings or measures related to the WTO dispute are not 
satisfactory, then USTR will take the most effective action under 
Section 301 to enforce U.S. WTO rights, which could include the re-
imposition of duties.
