Japanese Agricultural Policies Towards 2000: Swimming with the Tide

Paul Riethmuller, S. Kobayashi and S. Shogenji

Review of Marketing and Agricultural Economics, 1996, vol. 64, issue 01

Abstract: Japanese agricultural policy has undergone substantial change in the last year. Since the completion of the Uruguay Round, the rice market has been partially opened, import quotas on agricultural products have been replaced by tariffs and there has been a general shift away from consumer funding of agricultural programs to funding by taxpayers. These changes are making Japanese agricultural policies more transparent and more open to scrutiny. There is now recognition in Japan that the changes are irreversible and that agriculture will be faced with increasing competition from imports.
