Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
Notice is hereby given that the Department of Commerce has determined that the Government of Bolivia has discontinued allowing substantially reciprocal tax exemptions to aircraft of U.S. registry in connection with international commercial operations similar to those exemptions currently granted to aircraft of Bolivian registry by the United States. The Department reached this determination after a review conducted pursuant to Section 4221 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended (26 U.S.C. 4221). The above-cited statute provides exceptions for aircraft of foreign registry from payment of certain internal revenue taxes on the purchase of supplies in the United States for such aircraft in connection with their international commercial operations. These exemptions apply upon a finding by the Secretary of Commerce, or his designee, and communicated to the Department of the Treasury, that such country allows, or will allow, ``substantially reciprocal privileges'' to aircraft of U.S. registry with respect to purchases of such supplies in that country. If a foreign country discontinues the allowance of such substantially reciprocal exemption, the exemption allowed by the United States will not apply after the Secretary of the Treasury is notified by the Secretary of Commerce, or his designee, of the discontinuance. Interested parties were invited in a Federal Register Notice dated June 30, 2005, to submit their views, comments and supporting documentation in writing concerning this matter to the U.S. Department of Commerce. The Department then conducted its review. Those desiring additional information contact Mr. Eugene Alford, Office of Service Industries, Room 1104, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230, or telephone 202-482-5071.

Furthermore, twenty-eight companies have reported no shipments during the period of review. If we determine that the companies did not ship subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we will rescind the review for these companies for the final results. Finally, requests for review of the antidumping order for thirty-two companies were withdrawn. Because the withdrawal requests were timely and there were no other requests for review of the companies, we are rescinding the review for these companies. See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Honey from the People's Republic of China: Intent to Rescind and Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews
Document Number: E6-8858
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-06-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The U.S. Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting new shipper reviews of the antidumping duty order on honey from the People's Republic of China (PRC) in response to requests from Shanghai Taiside Trading Co., Ltd. (Taiside) and Wuhan Shino-Food Trade Co., Ltd. (Shino-Food). The period of review (POR) is December 1, 2004, through May 31, 2005. We have preliminarily determined that the new shipper review for Shino-Food should be rescinded because the sale made by Shino-Food was not bona fide, and we have preliminarily determined that the sale made by Taiside is bona fide and that the sale has been made below normal value. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries of subject merchandise during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.
