Japan Farm Policy, Including 407% Rice Tariff, Distorting Competition
WTO, Jan 26, 2005
The World Trade Organization issued a trade policy report Tuesday criticizing Japan's farm policy for distorting competition and pressed the country to open its market further. Japan keeps high import tariffs on farm items such as rice, dairy products and wheat, with the tariff rate at 407 percent for rice, the WTO pointed out in its report. The average tariff rates for agricultural imports did decline to 17.7 percent in 2004 from 20.0 percent two years ago, WTO noted. The report also pointed out farm subsidies in Japan are much larger than the average amount paid by Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development member countries. The report was published as part of a biennial trade policy review of member countries. The findings in the report will be discussed in a review meeting taking place in Geneva through Thursday.
