The importance of cane sugar to the economies of a large number of Commonwealth countries who are members of the Lomé Convention, the continuing significant role played by Commonwealth sugar producers in supplying the United Kingdom market and the interdependence between cane growers in these countries and workers in the United Kingdom cane refining industry make sugar a commodity of special interest to the Commonwealth. Any disturbance either to the present ACP supply arrangements or to the size of the United Kingdom refining capacity would damage the chain linking growers and users and could do substantial harm to many Commonwealth economies.
