Attendance at the "Towards One Trillion Yen in Agricultural Exports" Briefing

March 19, 2018: His Excellency Ambassador Dr. Bashir Mohabbat had the pleasure of attending the "Towards One Trillion Yen in Agricultural Exports" Briefing, briefed by Mr. Ken Saito, Minister of Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fishery Japan, at the Foreign Press Center Japan. Also in attendance was Mr. Asif Agah, Second Secretary of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Japan.
This briefing was about Japan increasing it's agricultural and food products export to one trillion in 2019. There has been an increasing demand for Japanese agricultural and food products in the overseas market due to it's health benefits and it's higher quality. The increasing market has been seen in the three-day expo held last year with 2,800 representative buyers from 70 different countries and regions. With expected buyers to grow to 4,000 this year. Japanese green tea has been on large demand overseas due to it's health benefits.
As Afghanistan is mostly an import based country, Afghanistan can benefit from Japanese imports. Especially with green tea, both cultures share green tea culture. With increasing popularity with fresh and dried fruits Afghanistan can increase it's diversity in it's fruits market with the help of Japanese market export. This can increase not only cultural ties but economic ties between Afghanistan and Japan.
