Taiwan aims to export over 300 tons of rice to Japan in 2005
Taipei, Nov. 5 (CNA) Taiwan aims to export over 300 tons of rice to Japan in 2005, more than double the 2004 level, the Cabinet-level Council of Agriculture (COA) reported Saturday.

Taiwan exported 126 tons of "Fu Lee" rice grown in Hualien county to Japan last year -- the first shipments of locally produced rice to that neighboring country after a hiatus of 33 years, an official of the Agriculture and Food Agency under the COA said.

Japanese officials and private-sector experts visited Taiwan three times to conduct on-site inspection, sampling and testing before the Japanese government allowed the opening last year, reflecting that the quality and safety of Taiwan rice has reached the world's top-shelf level, the official added.

The agency plans to help Hualien farmers sell about 162 tons of "Fu Lee" rice to Japan this year, the official said, adding that this will help bring the level of Taiwan rice exports to Japan to more than 300 tons for the whole year.

Taiwan already exported 54 tons of "Fu Lee" rice to Japan in August, and some 108 tons of rice grown in Taitung county are slated to be shipped to Japan later this month, he noted.

The counties of Haulien and Taitung in eastern Taiwan are the country's prime granary of high-end rice.
