PH gets 3rd
largest sugar quota share

The Philippines has the third largest share of the US sugar quota for Fiscal Year 2013 allocated to 38 countries, information relayed by United States Trade Representative Ron Kirk to the Sugar Regulatory Administration showed yesterday.

The allocation for the Philippines is 144,901 metric tons raw value putting it in third place, with the Dominican Republic getting the largest allocation at 188,908 MTRV followed by Brazil with 155,634 MTRV.

The country specific in-quota allocations under the tariff-rate quotas on imported raw cane sugar, refined and specialty sugar and sugar-containing products for Fiscal Year 2013 cover the period from Oct. 1, 2012 to Sept. 30, 2013, Kirk said

Tariff-rate quotas allow countries to export specified quantities of a product to the United States at a relatively low tariff, SRA Administrator Ma. Regina Martin said.

The Office of the United States Trade Representative has allocated a raw cane sugar tariff rate quota (TRQ) of 1,117,195 MTRV for 2013 to the 38 countries in specified quantities.

These allocations are based on each country’s historical shipments to the United States, Kirk said.

Raw cane sugar, refined and specialty sugar and sugar-containing products for FY2013 TRQs may enter the United States starting of Oct. 1, 2012, Kirk said.*CPG
