first_img Facebook Twitter By NAFB News Service – Dec 4, 2019 Japan Approves Partial Trade Agreement with U.S. Japan’s Upper House of Parliament Wednesday ratified a partial trade agreement with the United States, which will go into effect on January 1, 2020. Ryan LeGrand, President and CEO of the U.S. Grains Council, notes that the  agreement “solidifies trade with our second-largest corn market.”The agreement immediately reduces U.S. corn and sorghum imports for all purposes to a zero-tariff level, reduces the U.S. barley mark up and includes a staged tariff reduction for U.S. ethanol and U.S. corn, barley and sorghum flour. Also, U.S. feed and food corn, corn gluten feed, and DDGS will continue to receive duty-free market access.Meanwhile, the U.S. Meat Export Federation called the agreement “one of the biggest developments in the history of red meat trade.” With tariff rates mirroring those imposed on major competitors, USMEF’s forecast for 2020 is for U.S. beef and pork exports to Japan to reach $2.3 billion and $1.7 billion, respectively. Export volumes are projected to be roughly 360,000 metric tons for beef and 410,000 metric tons for pork.

first_img May 27, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information BelarusEurope – Central Asia RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders condemns the arbitrary arrests of journalists Ivan Roman and Ihar Bantsar in the past three days to prevent them from attending a demonstration which opponents of President Alexandre Lukashenko plan to hold on 14 October. Roman went on hunger strike after learning he has been sentenced to five days in prison.“We deplore the preventive arrests of journalists and opposition members and we call on the Belarusian authorities not to continue,” the press freedom organisation said.Roman, of Radio Racyja, was arrested at his home on 9 October by plain-clothes police. Bantsar, the editor of the magazine Polski na Uchodzstwie, was arrested on 10 October and sentenced to ten days in prison. The media were not allowed to attend Roman’s trial on 10 October, at which he was given the five-day sentence for “filthy language.”Reporters Without Borders managed to speak to Roman briefly by telephone before his trial. He said his imprisonment was “directly linked to the European march planned for 14 October in Minsk.” Andrey Bastunets, the vice-president of the Belarusian Association of Journalists (BAJ), said the arrests were “ridiculous and their motives clearly identifiable – confining people who could attend the demonstration.”The police also arrested leading opposition figures on 9 and 10 October with the apparent aim of holding them for four or five days so that they cannot attend the protest march.Other journalists, including Andrey Pachabut and Alyaksey Saley of Polski na Uchodzstwie, Andrey Dynko of the newspaper Nasha Niva, Andrey Pisalnik, the former editor of the newspaper Glos znad Niemna and Andrei Shantarovich, the former editor of the weekly Mestnaya Gazeta, were the victims earlier this year of similar preventive measures against the government’s opponents.Belarus was placed 151st in the latest Reporters Without Borders ranking of 168 countries according to their respect for press freedom. “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Organisation RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Follow the news on Belaruscenter_img to go further News October 12, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists and opposition members arrested to prevent them taking part in protest Receive email alerts June 2, 2021 Find out more BelarusEurope – Central Asia May 28, 2021 Find out more News Newslast_img read more
