The Sweetener Users Association (“SUA”) appreciates the opportunity to comment on a March 1, 2017 letter filed by the Government of Mexico with respect to that nation’s suspension of export licenses for sugar to the United States, as well as related actions. SUA members are the end users of sugar imported from Mexico and other countries, and actions by the governments of the United States and Mexico, which materially affect the volume of such imports will have an effect on these companies’ sales, costs, employment and contributions to the U.S. economy. In our view, it would be extremely unfortunate if a misunderstanding or error in administration of the suspension agreements between the two countries caused a prolonged delay in exports of sugar to the United States.
