SPECIAL REPORT: Japan, the TPP, and Agriculture

As Japan continues to take halting steps towards joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), Promar is initiating a series of reports covering the challenges and opportunities Japan’s participation creates. In this first note, we highlight five agricultural products (dairy, sugar, rice, pork, beef) that we believe are Japan’s most sensitive and that will therefore cause the most problems for negotiators on all sides. Subsequent notes will go into greater detail on each of these products, along with others and will also look additional issues that could affect TPP negotiations.
