WASHINGTON, July 3, 2014 - The U.S. Trade Representative's Office (USTR) today announced country-specific reallocations of the fiscal year 2014 in-quota quantities of the World Trade Organization (WTO) tariff-rate quota (TRQ) for imported raw cane sugar.

TRQs allow countries to export specified quantities of a product to the U.S. at a relatively low tariff, but subject all imports of the product above a pre-determined threshold to a higher tariff.

Based on consultations with quota holding countries, USTR is reallocating 99,290 metric tons raw value of the original TRQ for raw cane sugar from countries that have stated they will be unable to fill previously allocated FY 2014 WTO raw sugar TRQ quantities.


USTR is allocating this quantity to the following countries in the quantities specified below:
