Japan trade talk hopes BIG tariffs on Australian produce could be reduced if trade talks with Japan go well this week. Japan's Prime Minister Naoto Kan has pushed for freer trade to help Japan fight its way out of re- cession. The country has tariffs of 800 per cent on imported rice, up to 250 per cent on imported wheat and up to 2000 per cent on one var- iety of mushroom. Japan is understood to want better access to Aust- ralian minerals, including uranium for nuclear power. Trade Minister Craig Emerson said Japan's new attitude could form the basis of ''re-energising negotiation toward a free trade agreement''. Negotiations broke down last April. Japan is yet to sign an FTA with a major agricul- tural exporter, despite being Australia's number one ex- port market. ''Australia would want a good offer on liberalising trade in agriculture as an essential part of any such agreement,'' Mr Emerson said. ''If tariffs went down and quotas increased we'd have better access. ''There's work to be done and we're prepared to do it.'' w w w.australia.gov.au/paidparentalleave Parents 13 61 50 Employers 13 11 58 PPL4/M8 T n me from or for ne b b s common p r of or n l fe.
