Japan pledges to reduce restrictions on oranges & mangosteen from Thailand

Yesterday, Japan’s visiting Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Kaneko Genjiro promised his Thai counterpart Chalermchai Srion that his country would make it more convenient to import oranges and mangosteen from Thailand.

Japanese farm minister Genjiro Kaneko said at the launch ceremony that Thailand is an ‘indispensable country’ for significantly increasing Tokyo's farm exports, citing the high popularity of wagyu beef and Japanese strawberries in the Southeast Asian country. Japan plans to set up food export initiatives in eight countries and territories -- including the United States, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and the European Union -- by fiscal 2023.
