  • In 2001, after a year-long investigation requested by the American Honey Producers Association (AHPA) and Sioux Honey Association (SHA) on behalf of their beekeeper members, the U.S. government imposed antidumping (AD) duties on honey imports China to prevent those imports from destroying the domestic honey industry.

  •  In 2007 and 2012, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) voted to continue imposing AD duties on Chinese honey imports for additional 5-year periods after determining that without those duties, domestic beekeepers would likely be materially injured, if not destroyed, by the return of dumped honey imports from China.

  • On November 1, 2017, the ITC for the third time will start considering whether the AD duties on honey imports from China should be stopped, or should be continued for an additional five years.  Both the AHPA and SHA will again actively participate in this 3rd “Sunset” Review to convince the ITC to keep the AD duties in place. Trade Lawyers at Kelly Drye & Warren (KDW), and economists and trade specialists at Georgetown Economic Services (GES), will again represent AHPA and SHA and their members in the 3rd Sunset Review.

  •  You have received this survey because you are an SHA or AHPA member.  The survey’s requested information is essential to our case for convincing the ITC to retain the AD duties on Chinese honey imports for another five years.  It thus is extremely important that you send your completed survey response no later than Monday, October 23 to Gina Beck of GES, as directed below.  

All data reported by your firm will be treated as business confidential information and will not be released in a manner that will reveal the individual operations of your firm.
