(19 U.S.C. 2702) and the Republic of the Philippines. This will enable United States refiners, processors or operators to purchase raw sugar from CBI beneficiary countries and the Republic of the Philippines at United States domestic prices for export of an equivalent quantity of refined sugar into world markets within 60 days. The tonnage for fiscal year 1988 for this purpose shall be no less than 290,000 short tons, raw value, for the CBI nations and 110,000 short tons, raw value, for the Philippines. This amount shall be in addition to the sugar quota level established for the CBI and Philippines pursuant to the tariff schedules (19 U.S.C. 1202), for calendar year 1988 and shall not be held as violating the no cost provision contained in the sugar title of the Food Security Act of 1985. In order to maximize the number of competing bidders, the Secretary shall, in determining the low bidders in the special export enhancement program established under this section, make appropriate adjustments in bids received from sugar refiners and processors to reflect differing transportation costs based on refinery and factory location. (c) The Secretary of Agriculture shall estimate the dollar amount of section 416 commodities which would be made available to compensate eligible CBI countries and the Philippines for the 1988 sugar quota year and operate the special sugar export enhancement program by adjusting the quantities of sugar shipped and imported under this program so as to insure that the cost of $12,000,000 below the outlay costs for fiscal year 1988 of the section 416 commodities that would otherwise have been made available, including any costs in shipping the minimum amount of section 416 commodities as required in the Food Security Act of 1985. To estimate dollar values, the Secretary of Agriculture shall estimate the cost of the certificates to be 13 percent above their face value. ^
