Asahi, Mainichi, Yomiuri, and Nikkei wrote that the GOJ presented to a meeting of the ruling coalition on Monday a package of assistance measures for Japan’s agriculture, forestry, and fisheries industries, which will likely be affected by the new TPP agreement and Japan-EU EPA. The measures are likely to total around 300 billion yen and include subsidies for farmers producing milk for cheese. The GOJ will officially decide on the package this week and include it in a supplementary budget for fiscal 2017.
