Japan: Japanese Free Trade Agreements to Affect U.S. Fruit Competitiveness

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

A free trade agreement (FTA) between Japan and members of the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), as well as a soon-to-be effectuated FTA between Japan and the European Union (EU) will lead to increased market competition for fruit and fruit product exports to Japan, particularly for fresh oranges from Australia and fresh grapes from Australia and Chile. In 2017, Japan imported approximately $2.55 billion of fresh fruit products, of which 19.5 percent (approximately ($834 million) was from the United States.
