                               [Docket No. 28-84] 
                                  49 FR 22120 
                                  May 25, 1984 
Foreign-Trade Zone 9, Honolulu, Hawaii; Application for Subzone at Hawaiian 
Flour Mills Plant 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) on behalf of the State of Hawaii, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 
9, by the Hawaii State Department of Planning and Economic Development, 
requesting special-purpose status for Hawaiian Flour Mills, Inc. (HFM) in 
Honolulu, Hawaii, within the Honolulu Customs port of entry. The application
was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as 
amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 
400). It was formally filed on May 18, 1984. The applicant is authorized to 
make this proposal under Act 7 of the Session Laws of Hawaii, 1963. 
   The proposed subzone would be located in a section of the Hawaiian Flour 
Mills plant, 703 No. Nimitz Highway, adjacent to Pier 23 at Honolulu Harbor, 
Honolulu. The facility employs 97 persons engaged in the milling and 
blending of flour and the wholesaling of a variety of food products, with 
16 persons engaged in milling and blending. The portion of the plant which 
would use zone procedures will produce bakery mixes for export by blending 
domestic flour, shortening, yeast and salt with foreign-sourced sugar and 
powdered milk. Bakery mixes produced for the domestic market would not get 
zone benefits.  
   Zone procedures would exempt HFM from duty payment and quota requirements
on the foreign material used in its exports. The company indicates that this
would improve its competitive position in foreign markets, creating the 
opportunity for a doubling of its exports sales and an increase in plant 
employment by 10 persons.  

   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The 
committee consists of: John J. Da Ponte, Jr. (Chairman), Director, 
Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 
20230; George Roberts, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific 
Region, 335 Merchant, 228 Federal Bldg., P.O. Box 1641, Honolulu, HI 96806;
and Brig. General Robert M. Bunker, Division Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer 
Division Pacific Ocean, Building 230, Ft. Shafter, HI 96858. 
   Comments concerning the proposed subzone are invited in writing from 
interested persons and organizations. They should be addressed to the 
Board's Executive Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or 
before June 26, 1984.  

   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of 
the following locations:
