Location: Main Hearing Room, USITC Building (500 E Street SW)

The Commission is postponing its hearing scheduled for September 24, 2019, regarding fresh tomatoes from Mexico.


On August 30, 2019, the Commission published a revised schedule for the conduct of the final phase of its investigation of fresh tomatoes from Mexico with a hearing date of September 24, 2019 (84 FR 46756). Subsequently, on September 19, 2019, the Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) and certain Mexican tomato producers/exporters signed an agreement to suspend Commerce’s antidumping duty investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico.  Commerce’s suspension of its investigation is scheduled to take effect on the day on which its notice of such suspension is published.  When Commerce’s suspension of the investigation takes effect, the Commission will suspend its related investigation.  In the meantime, the Commission is postponing its hearing scheduled for September 24 and all subsequently scheduled dates.


Hearing open to media and public; witness list expected by September 23, 2019.  Broadcast media planning to cover this hearing should contact Peg O'Laughlin in advance at 202-205-1819.
