Fresh Garlic From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of New Shipper Reviews
The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting six new shipper reviews (NSRs) of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the People's Republic of China (PRC) covering the periods of review (PORs) of November 1, 2007 through April 30, 2008 and November 1, 2007 through June 9, 2008. As discussed below, we preliminarily determine that sales have been made in the United States at prices below normal value (NV) with respect to certain exporters who participated fully and have demonstrated their eligibility for a separate rate in the NSRs. The NSRs for Jinxiang Tianheng Trade Co., Ltd. and Shandong Jinxiang Zhengyang Import & Export Co., Ltd. continue to be preliminarily rescinded. The dumping margins are set forth in the ``Preliminary Results of the Reviews'' section below. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which importer-specific assessment rates are above de minimis. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. See ``Comments'' section below.
