Japan Plans To Lift 50 Percent Frozen Beef Tariff By March’s End

The January report from the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) showed Japan is maintaining a large appetite for U.S. beef products with January exports increasing 7 percent from 2017 volume levels and 19 percent in value.

Japan is expected to lift its additional safeguard tariffs on U.S. frozen beef shipment the end of march, dropping the 50 percent tariff to 38.5 percent. This decrease is expected to make the U.S. more competitive with other countries, but it isn’t as low as Australia’s tariff with the island nation.

“We feel we can deal with that tariff gap as it is right now, but we certainly don’t want to experience the 50 percent tariff again,” said Joe Schuele, communications director of the USMEF.

Last week, Ted McKinney, USDA undersecretary, visited Japan and said the Japanese were eluding to removing the tariffs.

“They’re honorable people, and I’d be very disappointed if it didn’t get lifted,” he said.

Hear McKinney talk about how Japan wants the U.S. to rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership on AgDay above.

Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.
