Japanese pork import control announcement. The Japan Ham and Sausage
Industrial Association has announced an appeal to use domestic pork and to
control pork importation on a voluntary basis. The association based its
announcement on the following: (1) future overproduction of domestic pork
market, (2) estimated decline of domestic pork prices, (3) rise in pork
prices in foreign markets. A "Voluntary" control has restricted the mlport
of pork in Japan since January 1, 1980. The action by the Japan Ham and
Sausage Industrial Association just extends the restriction on pork imports
beyond July 31, 1980.
