Statement by Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns and U.S. Trade Representative
Rob Portman Regarding Announcement by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal
(CITT) negative final injury finding in the anti-dumping and countervail
investigations of imports of unprocessed grain corn from the United States
"The United States is very pleased by the Canadian International Trade
Tribunal’s finding in the anti-dumping and countervailing investigations of
imports of unprocessed grain corn from the United States.
"This decision results in no final anti-dumping or countervailing duties
being imposed. All provisional duties collected will be refunded. The ruling is
confirmation that, when properly utilized, the international trading system
works in favor of free trade. This is good news for U.S. corn producers and
exporters, as well as our valued Canadian customers. Exports of unprocessed U.S.
grain corn to Canada account for more than $200 million in sales each year."
