On August 4, 2017, the Solar Energy Industries Association and its member company SunPower Inc. (collectively SEIA) requested in the above-captioned investigation that the Commission conduct in camera a portion of its hearing on injury issues scheduled for August 15, 2017. The Commission believes it should conduct its business in public in all but the most unusual circumstances. The Commission has determined that, in light of the nature of this investigation and the ample opportunity given parties to present written arguments, including those relying on confidential information, it will be able to assess adequately all arguments raised by SEIA without resorting to the extraordinary measure of an in camera hearing. Accordingly, the Commission has determined that the public interest would be best served by a hearing that is entirely open to the public. See 19 CFR 201.36(c)(1).
