In this instant review, the Department, needs additional time to consider complex issues related to the appropriate net countervailable subsidy rate likely to prevail if the order is revoked, which the Department will provide to the International Trade Commission. Thus, the Department intends to issue the final results on or about December 10, 2004, in accordance with sections 751(c)(5)(B) and 751(c)(5)(C)(i), (ii) and (iii) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended.Start Signature
