Mexico Threatens Retaliation on US HFCS If US Triggers Duties on Mexican Sugar
“All hell will break loose” if the US triggers antidumping duties on Mexican sugar in the coming days, Mexico’s economy minister has warned. Ildefonso Guajardo threatened, in an interview with the Financial Times, to impose duties on US corn syrup in retaliation. “We have been [in the US, negotiating on sugar] for more than a week. It’s like pinball. They table something; we respond; we table something,” Guajardo said.
