Singapore lifts restrictions on food imports from Japan

NHK reported that Singapore has lifted its restrictions on imports of Japanese food products that had been imposed after the Fukushima nuclear accident. The network said Singapore had been requiring Japan to submit radiation test reports for fishery products from Fukushima and elsewhere as well as documents stating the origins of all food products from Japan. According to MAFF, Singapore lifted these restrictions as of today. The network added, however, that 14 nations and regions, including China, South Korea, and Taiwan, continue to impose restrictions on imports of food from Japan. Farm Minister Nogami reportedly told the press today: “We will continue to tenaciously urge all levels of government in the remaining nations and regions to ease or remove the restrictions based on scientific grounds.”
