Rice Imports Have Not Affected Taiwan's Domestic Market
Rice imports have so far not affected the domestic rice market, the Council of Agriculture (COA) said Sunday.

Since Taiwan was admitted to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in January 2002, it has been required to import up to 144,720 metric tons of rice annually.

But only 35 per cent of the mandatory amount has been opened for the private sector to import, with the remaining 65 per cent imported by the government for stockpiling for later distribution in accordance with the domestic market supply and demand situation.

As a result, COA officials said, the domestic rice market has so far not been affected by the restricted market opening measures.

In addition, the officials went on, the COA has adopted various other measures to protect rice farmers' rights and interests and maintain domestic market stability, including raising subsidies for rice paddy owners and farmers whose paddies are compulsorily left fallow, upgrading the quality of locally produced rice and promoting rice exports.

Noting that sustainable development of the rice farming industry is a government policy goal, the officials said the government is determined to develop a globally competitive rice production industry and protect rice farmers' legitimate rights and interests
