Korea, US to Talk on Rice Import Quota
SEOUL (Yonhap) - South Korea and the United States will hold their annual consultation meeting this week to discuss the timetable for Seoul¡¯s import of foreign rice under a 2004 pact, the Agriculture Ministry said Wednesday. It said the talks, scheduled for Friday in Seoul, will deal with the sale of rice brought into the country as part of the 2005 quota. Lawmakers delayed ratification of the pact for most of last year, which held up the imports.

Washington is also expected to ask for details on when South Korea will import its allotted quota for this year, and on measures being taken by Seoul to facilitate sales.

Sales of imported rice, though gaining some momentum in recent weeks, are still below initial expectations, with demand for U.S. rice being particularly weak.

Under the deal South Korea struck with nine rice-exporting nations, including the United States and China, Seoul is to raise its rice import quota to 7.96 percent of its total domestic consumption by 2014, up from 4 percent at the end of 2004
