Japan Agribusiness Report Q2 2014

BMI View: Since announcing the scrapping of the four-decade long 'gentan' subsidy programme for ricefarmers, we are increasingly optimistic that the shift from protecting the Japanese agriculture industry atall costs to a more open and competitive one is happening sooner than we had anticipated. In particular forthe rice sector, this new policy should lead to more industry consolidation and reap economies of scale inthe longer term. While this should invigorate the ailing industry, we still view the hold on the 300 overpercent in import tariff as a barrier to a true liberalising of the sector.

Key Forecasts

Rice production growth to 2017/18: 0.3% on the 2013 level to 9.0mn tonnes. The gradual consolidationof the industry should increase economies of scale and output of the industry.

Beef production growth to 2017/18: 0.6% on the 2013 level to 507,800 tonnes. Production of beefshould grow alongside increased wages.
