U.S.-Japan Partnership on Trade Launched
USAgNet - 12/03/2021

The United States and Japan recently announced the launching of a “partnership on trade” to continue to strengthen the alliance of the two nations through regular engagement on trade-related matters.

Chaired by representatives of the office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) and of Japan’s Foreign Affairs and Economy, Industry and Trade ministries, the U.S.-Japan Partnership on Trade will build upon the Biden administration’s plan to pursue an economic framework for the Indo-Pacific region, while also addressing digital trade and third-country concerns.

The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) has been working in the Japanese market for 60 years, contributing to the rapid growth of the livestock and feed industries.

“The U.S. Grains Council values the relationships it has built in Japan over the years,” said Ryan LeGrand, USGC President and CEO.

“As this new trade partnership develops, the council looks forward to working with the United States and Japan to further promote trade between the two nations.”

This past year, USGC worked hard to continue to build upon its longstanding relationship between the United States and Japan by providing virtual programming when in-person activities were not possible.

Product developers from the largest health-oriented food barley industry in Japan learned about new opportunities in health-oriented foods — including U.S. high beta-glucan barley via webinar, while the North Asia Virtual Crop Tour gave Japanese buyers and end-users an inside look at this year’s corn crop in the United States without leaving their workspace.
