Japan asks China to end rice embargo
Japan has officially requested that China lift its embargo on the import of Japanese rice, government sources said Saturday.

China imports rice from Thailand and some other countries, but has banned Japanese rice on the grounds that it may carry disease or insects harmful to local agriculture. Tokyo is urging Beijing to settle the quarantine question as soon as possible.

The market price of Japanese rice would likely be 10-20 times that of Chinese rice, but the Japanese government expects wealthy people to buy it because it is tastier than the rice from other foreign countries.

Japan currently exports about four million tons of rice annually, mainly to Taiwan and the U.S. It consumes some 8.5 million tons, compared with 135 million tons in China.

Once Beijing lifts the import restriction, Japanese agricultural organizations and trading companies will start marketing activities in the country, with annual exports expected to exceed 10 million tons, according to government officials.
