The Australian and New Zealand embassies welcome the upcoming entry into force of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). This history-making agreement will deliver new opportunities for our respective exporters, investors and firms engaged in business here in Japan and in other CPTPP markets.
With the first round of tariff cuts to take place on 30 December 2018, Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) has released information on the application processes for importing products subject to tariff rate quotas (TRQs) under the CPTPP.
Further information can be found in Japanese here: http://www.maff.go.jp/j/kokusai/boueki/tpp/06/01/02/2018kohyo.html.
The list of TRQ items in the above link does not currently cover all items under the CPTPP agreement. MAFF will make announcements on the remaining commodities at later dates.
