Foreign Trade Developments


The agreements reached by the U.S. in the Tokyo Round of Multilateral Trade
Negotiations in Geneva this spring and legislation implementing the agree-
ments are scheduled to go to Congress for approval by mid-June.

The agreements will result in reduction of tariff and non-tariff barriers
and in key duty bindings in major U.S. agricultural markets, including
Japan and the European Community.

Tariff and quota concessions offered to the United States cover almost $4
billion in export trade on a 1976 basis. Products covered include high-
quality beef, pork, turkey, soybeans, fresh and canned fruit, fruit juices,
almonds, and tobacco, and a wide range of other items--more than 400 in all.

Potentially even more important for the long term was negotiation of a series
of international codes to bring under control the use of non-tariff barriers.
The codes extend the trading system of the General Agreement on Tariffs and
Trade (GATT) into areas where it had not previously reached and elaborate on
existing rules and procedures.

The economic benefits of the agreements are difficult to measure. Concessions
offered to the United States involve almost $4 billion in exports, but that
is a rough measure of trade affected today, not what this trade will mean
in the future.

In the Dillion Round of trade negotiations in the early 1960's, for example,
the United States negotiated a duty-free binding on soybeans to the European
Community. At that time, it covered export trade worth about $150 million.
Today, soybean exports to the Community are valued at more than $2 billion yearly.

Similarly, there is no price tag on the benefits from the international codes.
But the subsidies code, as one example, reduces the unfair advantage U.S.
competitors have had through the use of subsidies in markets for grain worth
nearly $12 billion to U.S. producers last year and for poultry products
worth $330 million.

To achieve benefits, the United States offered tariff concessions of its own,
covering about $2.6 billion in agricultural imports in 1976. In addition,
the U.S. cheese import quota was increased by about 15 percent over 1978
levels. At the same time, however, the so-called "price break" cheeses, which
has accounted for virtually all the growth of U.S. cheese imports since the
mid-1960's, were put under quota for the first time.

Japanese beef purchases. The Japanese Livestock Industry Promotion Corporation
(LIPC) announced purchase of 1,576 metric tons of U.S. frozen grain fed beef
cuts under tender called on May 30. This, the second LIPC tender against the
1979 Japanese fiscal year (JFY79) quota, called for 1,600 metric tons of grain-
fed beef. Purchases with the amounts tendered in parenthesis were as follows:
Square Cut Chuck 142 mt (100); Short Plate 1,016 mt (900); Striploin 306 mt
(300); and Beef Skirt Plate 112 mt (300). All purchases are to be delivered
by August 15. Including the beef skirt plate, which does not count against


the High Quality Beef Quota of 10,000 mt granted by the Japanese in JFY-1978,
the above purchases represent 1,464 mt of High Quality beef. Together with
the LIPC first tender purchase of 2,150.5 mt, JFY-79 purchases now total
3,614.5 mt of High Quality beef. Only 134 mt of Beef Skirt Plate have been

Japanese temperature/time standard for roast beef. The Japanese Ministry of
Health has advised that the only acceptable temperature/time standard for
the roasting process for beef cuts exported to Japan is an internal temperature
and time of 145 degrees F. for 30 minutes. The alternative temperature/time
combinations for roast beef announced by the Food Safety and Quality Service,
Meat and Poultry Inspection (MPI) through MPI Bulletin 79-16 are not acceptable.
