Japan: Country-Specific Quotas in US-Japan Trade Agreement
The U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement (USJTA) entered into force on January 1, 2020. In this agreement, preferential market access for some products will be provided through the creation of country-specific quotas (CSQs), which provide access for a specified quantity of imports from the United States at a preferential tariff rate, generally zero. Products with CSQs include wheat, malt, processed cheese, whey, glucose and fructose, corn and potato starch, mixes and doughs, and inulin. More details are available at www.usdajapan.org/usjta.
