RFA, Growth Energy and USGC want USTR to strip Brazil of GSP status

November 13, 2017 |

In Washington, the Renewable Fuels Association, Growth Energy and the US Grains Council sent a letter to the US Trade Representative asking him to remove Brazil’s preferential status in retaliation for the import tariff and quota set for ethanol imports into Brazil. Removing Brazil’s GSP status wouldn’t just impact ethanol imports but all other imports originating in the country. The three organizations say in the letter Brazil is violating the requirement to provide “equitable and reasonable access to the markets.”
