Video Report (Press Briefing): How will Japan’s Agriculture be changed by Japan’s New Policy and TPP? (November 29, 2013)
post date : 2013.12.03
Currently we see some important moves that will presumably affect Japanese agriculture. The government has compiled a new agricultural policy declaring the abolition of the rice paddy set-aside program in five years. In the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiation, which, it is hoped, will be concluded by the end of this year, agriculture is also one of the major fields of controversy.
FPCJ has invited Dr. Kazuhito Yamashita, Research Director of the Canon Institute for Global Studies, to talk about how Japan's new policy and TPP would change Japan's agriculture.
The briefing was attended by a total of 31 persons, including 12 journalists from China, France, Germany, Indonesia, the Netherlands, the ROK, the U.K. and the U.S..
