Japan: Safeguards in US-Japan Trade Agreement
The U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement (USJTA) entered into force on January 1, 2020. This agreement provides for the limited use of safeguards which allow for temporary tariff increases when imports surpass a predetermined trigger level. Japan will have safeguards for beef, pork, whey, oranges, and racehorses. More details are available at www.usdajapan.org/usjta.
