Additionally, for MY 2017/18, Post projects exports to reach 200,000 MT and imports at 60,000 MT, based on expected return to normal rainfall patterns and a rebound in production yields. Finally, the Dominican Republic is estimated to fill the U.S. annual sugar tariff-rate quota (TRQ) for FY 2017 due to price premiums in the U.S. market.
