Recission of 1998-99 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review
On July 29, 1999, in response to a request by Daewoo-MGM Rt., the Department published a Notice of Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Administrative Reviews (64 FR 41075). Daewoo-MGM Rt. was the only party which requested a review. On March 20, 2000, Daewoo-MGM Rt. withdrew its request for review. We are therefore rescinding this review in its entirety in accordance with 19 U.S.C. 1675(a)(1) of the Act and § 351.213(d)(1) of our regulations.
The recission of this review does not affect the reclassification of the Republic of Hungary to market economy status for antidumping purposes (see Decision Memorandum from Joseph A. Spetrini to Robert S. LaRussa on Market vs. Non-Market Economy Analysis of the Republic of Hungary, dated February 23, 2000). This notice is published in accordance with 19 U.S.C. 1677(f) and § 351.213(d)(4) of our regulations.Start Signature
