USA Rice Meets with U.S. Agriculture Minister-Counselor to Japan and FAS Staff
WASHINGTON — Michael Rue, California rice producer and chair of the Asia trade policy subcommittee met yesterday with Dan Berman, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) representative to the U.S. embassy in Tokyo. USA Rice staff members Jim Guinn and Bob Cummings joined Rue in the meeting. The discussion focused on the injury suffered by U.S. exporters of rice flour mixes caused by Japan’s release of stocks of imported rice; the high cost of chemical tests required by Japan; the Liberty Link (LL) issue; the outlook for the World Trade Organization (WTO) Doha Round negotiations; and the broad direction of USA Rice’s promotional effort in Japan. The USA Rice group also met with USDA’s Foreign Agriculture Service staff to discuss USA Rice’s technical assistance to the USDA and U.S. Trade Representative in connection with the WTO case against Turkey’s rice import regime; rice tariffication in Taiwan; and next steps to remove the commercial uncertainty in connection with testing for LL traits in U.S. rice exported to Taiwan and Korea. Guinn will travel to Korea and Taiwan next week to discuss USA Rice promotional activities with contractors in those countries.
