Transcript of Trans Pacific Partnership - Pros and Cons from US and Japan perspective

The reason the food self-sufficiency ration will decrease What is Trans-Pacific Partnership? In the end Objectives of TPP Abolishing Tariffs will liberalize trading and thus export will increase and Domestic companies will gain profit. =Income per family will increase and enrich their lives
Approximately 2.7trillion yen of GDP raise will be expected in ten years.(2023)
Market competition will increase, which will drop the price of products = good news for the consumers! Pros of Joining TPP 1. Food self-sufficiency ratio will decrease Cons of Joining TPP Depends on the future annexation of Japan, Korea, Indonesia and especially China.

It depends upon each country's politics.

BUT ESPECIALLY ON... Assume that... Assume that you are a farmer
You normally sell food to others Harvest Failure
You have food only for your family.

Do you sell food to others as usual? TPP will decrease the food self-sufficency ratio in Japan 40% Now If TPP starts 13% They have to buy food at a higher price.
At worst, they cannot eat any food. Food self-sufficiency ratio in Japan Anticipated Issue Do they always sell food to Japanese? Nature of humanity Did you remember that people bought up food and drinks
after the Great East Japan Earthquake? Abolish Tariffs (Completely and NO EXCEPTION)
Take away the borders in order to make things to enter or leave between the countries with no strict regulations. = Unify the Import/Export rules. Abolishing Tariffs Tariff: A tax that will be added on Imported products: Products in this case includes, Food, Medicine,Insurance etc (Doesn't need to be an object)

Examples of Tariffs in Japan
Rice: 778%
Elephant Root(Konnyaku Potato): 1706%

Why is it so high? = To protect Domestic Producers!! Unity of Trading Rules Each country has its own rule, regulation, and criteria.

So, why don't we unify the rules and make our own to make everything easier?

=Domestic companies have to drop the price (To survive)
