U.S.—South Korea Tackle Trade ‘Irritants,’ Including Rice
US Rice
WASHINGTON (AFX) — U.S. Trade Representative Robert Zoellick raised a series of bilateral trade “irritants” with his South Korean counterpart, including trade policy concerning automobiles, beef, oranges, rice and others, officials said. The 90-minute meeting in Washington was the first between Zoellick and Kim Hyun Chong since the South Korean trade minister’s appointment in July. The United States has been asking South Korea to lift a quarantine imposed in April on some of its oranges that Seoul says was a result of a fungus reportedly found on some fruits shipped there earlier this year. But some U.S. growers allege that South Korea intended to pressure the U.S. government to lift its ban on imports of Unshu oranges after spores were reportedly found on the Korean fruit. Zoellick also expressed the hope to Kim that bilateral negotiations could be concluded over South Korea’s move to open its rice market, a U.S. trade official said. “Minister Kim noted South Korea’s intention in extending its WTO rice import arrangements which is scheduled to expire on Dec. 31 and referenced the bilateral rice negotiations that South Korea has been conducting with the U.S. as well as other major rice exporters,” he said. Seoul has been holding negotiations with the United States and eight other major riceexporting countries — China, Thailand, Australia, Argentina, Egypt, Canada, India and Pakistan — on its rice market opening measures. Under a 1994 global trade agreement, South Korea was given a grace period of 10 years to enjoy special treatment regarding rice imports, which will expire at the end of this year. The U.S. official said the two ministers also discussed a broad range of multilateral regional and bilateral trade issues with respect to the Doha Development Agenda under the World Trade Organization. The Doha round of trade talks stalled in September 2003 in Cancun, Mexico, but the WTO’s 147-member General Council agreed to re-launch them at the start of August.
