  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   JA2021-0162

The U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement (USJTA), which entered into force on January 1, 2020, improved market access for U.S. products through the creation of tariff-rate quotas (TRQs) for food wheat, wheat products, malt, processed cheese, whey, glucose and fructose, potato starch, corn starch, and inulin. Fill rates for these TRQs, however, remained low in the first half of Japanese Fiscal Year (JFY) 2021. This report provides the latest data on TRQ allocation and fill rates as well as a brief overview of the TRQ application process.
