On July 22, 2019, NAEGA staff attended a meeting with the Japan Feed Manufacturers Association (JFMA) and the Japan Feed Trade Association (JFTA), hosted by the U.S. Grains Council. The meeting addressed topics regarding corn quality, foreign material in U.S. corn exports and ways to increase U.S. corn exports to Japan. Japan continues to be a critical export market for U.S. farmers and the frank and open discussion with the Japanese delegation provided a forum to build on the existing trade partnership. NAEGA also connected with JFTA to begin planning for a Contracts and Best Practices Seminar to take place in Tokyo later this year.
