Fresh Tomatoes From Mexico
Document Number: E8-1732
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-01-31
Agency: International Trade Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The subject five-year review was instituted on November 1, 2007, to determine whether termination of the suspended investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury (72 FR 61903, November 1, 2007). On November 26, 2007, Mexican tomato growers/exporters accounting for a significant percentage of all fresh tomatoes imported into the United States from Mexico provided written notice to the Department of Commerce of their withdrawal from the agreement suspending the antidumping investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico. Effective January 18, 2008, the Department of Commerce terminated the suspension agreement, terminated the five-year review of the suspended investigation, and resumed the antidumping investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico because the suspension agreement no longer covered substantially all imports of fresh tomatoes from Mexico (73 FR 2887, January 16, 2008). Accordingly, the U.S. International Trade Commission gives notice of the termination of its review and the resumption of its antidumping investigation involving imports of fresh tomatoes from Mexico. A schedule for the final phase of the investigation will be established and announced at a later date.
