Growth Energy, RFA, USGC Release Statement on Brazil's Delayed Decision On Ethanol Import Tariff

Wed, 05 Jul 2017 15:10:28 CDT

Growth Energy, RFA, USGC Release Statement on Brazil's Delayed Decision On Ethanol Import Tariff The Executive Management Committee of CAMEX, Brazilís Chamber of Foreign Trade, announced today it would delay a decision on a pending proposal to impose a tariff of up to 17 percent on Brazilís imports of U.S. ethanol. The following is a joint statement on this action from U.S. Grains Council (USGC) President and CEO Tom Sleight, Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) President and CEO Bob Dinneen and Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor:



ďWe are encouraged to see Brazilís continued postponement on a decision regarding a pending proposal to impose tariffs on U.S. ethanol imports. Our organizations have been tracking this issue for months and have worked heavily in Washington, D.C., and Brasilia to provide all necessary information to the Brazilian government on this issue. Imposing tariffs on U.S. ethanol imports will hurt Brazilian consumers by driving up their costs at the pump. Additionally, this action on U.S. ethanol imports will go against Brazilís own longstanding view that ethanol tariffs are inappropriate and will harm the development of the global ethanol industry. We will continue this work and appreciate the thoughtful consideration Brazilian officials are taking on a proposal that could have wide-ranging and long-standing impacts on both our industries and the global fuel supply.Ē
