The Sweetener Users Association (SUA) appreciates the efforts of the Department of Commerce (DOC), in consultation with the Department of Agriculture (USDA), to renegotiate agreements with Mexico that have suspended antidumping and countervailing duties that would otherwise be imposed on sugar imported from that nation. The current suspension agreements, negotiated by the previous Administration, have proven unworkable and have actually been detrimental to the interests of U.S. sugar users, as well as the U.S. cane refiners upon whom we rely for supplies of refined sugar.
