Japan

Despite its high tariffs, restrictive quotas and complex regulations, Japan remains the United States’ fourth-largest agricultural export market. In fiscal year 2014, U.S. farm and food exports to Japan totaled $13.4 billion, up almost 8 percent from the previous year. Major U.S. agricultural exports to Japan include corn, pork, beef, soybeans and wheat.

Japan’s joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership could signal the government’s reconsideration of its current economic policy.
