    China to lift import ban on Japanese rice

    Seems that things are getting a lot better between Japan and China, since Abe has become PM.

    THE ASAHI SHIMBUN

    BEIJING--China on Thursday agreed in principle to lift its import ban on Japanese rice, in place since 2003, Japanese government officials said.

    The agreement came during a meeting of visiting Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Toshikatsu Matsuoka and a top Chinese quarantine official. The two countries will decide on when to resume imports before a visit to Japan by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, scheduled for April, according to the farm ministry.

    In February 2003, China revised its quarantine system and banned imports of Japanese rice, citing the risk of harmful insect pests. Japan's rice exports to China amounted to just one ton in 2000. Still, Japan is expecting China's decision to resume rice imports to give a momentum to the government's drive to expand exports of farm produce.



    is that good or what ^__^ yay hehe

    Hmm. It's not quite a debate topic, but it is a good discussion. And seeing as it doesn't belong in the Debate Forum, I'm going to move this to the Japanese Culture Forum. I figure it is best as this thread is sort of out of place in Cyber Lounge.

    Moving...

    Still, since Japan has been a net IMPORTER of rice the past few years, this really sounds more like an empty (and more political) jesture then anything else...
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    If that is true, and this threat have been deal with then resuming trade is pretty normal.
