Nikkei reported online on remarks made to the daily in Tokyo on Friday by visiting Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, who welcomed the recent U.S.-Japan agreement on reducing tariffs on U.S. agricultural items. “As our farmers have been hit hard when it comes to trade with China, we are looking forward to seeing something positive in relation to Japan,” the governor said. “We are looking for a level playing field.” While acknowledging that Japan’s imports of Ohio farm products do not match China’s in volume, the governor said local farmers still feel positive about the accord. He also expressed hope for more Japanese corporate investment in Ohio.
