Taiwan Rice Makes Inroads Into Japan
Council of Agriculture Chairman Lee Chin-lung said Tuesday he takes pride in seeing Taiwan-grown rice make successful inroads into Japan.

Lee made the remarks while presiding over a ceremony at Kaohsiung Harbor in southern Taiwan marking the delivery of 90 tons of "Fuli" rice grown in the eastern county of Hualien to Japan.

Noting that Japan has imposed extremely stringent standards in rice quality examination, Lee said the export of Fuli rice to Japan is a mark of pride for Taiwan.

It was the second shipment of Fuli rice to Japan, following an initial shipment of 18 tons in October of this year. With the October shipment receiving an enthusiastic response from Japanese consumers, Lee said, Japanese importers placed an additional order for 90 tons of Fuli rice. Lee said the export volume is expected to reach 300 tons next year.

Taiwan last exported rice to Japan in 1971. The resumption of rice exports to Japan indicates that the quality of locally grown rice has received foreign recognition and that the government's response measures to cope with the impact of Taiwan's entry into the World Trade Organization have been appropriate, Lee said.

The Fuli rice was grown in the unpolluted upper stretch of the Hsiukuluan Creek in Hualien with organic farming methods, Lee explained, adding that the rice has a wonderful taste and texture.
