The United States is set to slap anti-subsidy import duties on Mexican sugar after a preliminary decision expected to be formally annouced later on Tuesday, the president of Mexico's suger chamber said ahead of the ruling.

The decision to slap duties on sugar imports from Mexico is backed by U.S. sugar industry complaints of unfair competition from subsidized sweeteners in the industry's first trade case in decades.

But Juan Cortina, president of the Mexican chamber, gave no details on the size of the anti-subsidy duties.
