Impact to domestic agricultural products by Japan-Australia EPA will be 800 billion yen.
Rice Databank
Considering negotiations for Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) announced on December 1st that the estimate of impact to four items, wheat, sugar, dairy products and beef, the main imports, could be about 800 billion yen decrease as production of domestic agricultural products could decrease due to their disadvantageous price if the tariff was abolished.

The estimates by item are: wheat=120 billion yen, sugar=130 billion yen, dairy products=290 billion, beef=250 billion yen.

Rice hasn’t been noted, but the objects for negotiations are reported to be all items, so impact will come about if the tariff is to be abolished. Even if rice becomes out of the items, impact to the measure for management stability crossing items will be inevitable if the tariff of wheat is to be abolished.

Production of Australian rice is one million tons (husks base) in 2006 and is expected to decrease to 400,000 ton in 2007 when water shortage is noted, so the production level ranges from 400,000 ton to 1,200,000 tons although it varies year by year.

In the rice market in Japan, as the first SBS bit will overlap with marketing of domestic early rice, it seems that impact to domestic rice is inevitable if low-cost Australian Koshihikari comes into Japan.
