Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On January 16, 2008, the Department published the preliminary results of the aligned fifth administrative review and tenth new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on honey from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See Honey from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 2890 (January 16, 2008) (``Preliminary Results''). These aligned reviews cover seven exporters or producer/ exporters: (1) Dongtai Peak Honey Industry Co, Ltd. (``Dongtai Peak'') (2) Zhejiang Native Produce & Animal By-Products I/E Group Corporation (``Zhejiang Native''); (3) Wuhu Qinshi Tangye Co., Ltd. (``Wuhu Qinshi''); (4) Jiangsu Light Industry Products Imp & Exp (Group) Corp. (``Jiangsu Light''); (5) Qinhuangdao Municipal Dafeng Industrial Co., Ltd. (``QMD''); (6) Inner Mongolia Altin Bee-Keeping (``IMA''), and (7) QHD Sanhai Honey Co., Ltd. (``QHD Sanhai''). For these final results, the Department finds that Wuhu Qinshi, Jiangsu Light, QMD, and IMA failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of their ability to comply with the Department's request for information and, as a result, have been assigned a rate based on adverse facts available (``AFA''). The Department has assigned Dongtai Peak and Zhejiang Native a separate rate for non-selected entities based on the calculation proposed by the Department.\1\ Finally, after reexamining the bona fides of QHD Sanhai's single sale, the Department finds that sale is not a bona fide transaction; therefore, for these final results, the Department has rescinded the review with respect to QHD Sanhai. The period of review (``POR'') is December 1, 2005, through November 30, 2006. See ``Final Results of Review'' section below.
