image of Trade Policy Review: Japan 2013

“Trade Policy Reviews” analyse the trade policies and practices of each member of the WTO. The reviews consist of three parts: an independent report by the WTO Secretariat, a report by the government, and the concluding remarks by the Chair of the WTO’s Trade Policy Review Body. The opening section - “key trade facts” - provides a visual overview of the WTO member’s major exports/imports, main export destinations, origins for its imports and other key data. This edition looks into the trade practices of Japan.



Report by the WTO Secretariat

Since Japan’s previous Trade Policy Review in 2011, there has been little change in its trade and related policies. Nonetheless, the simple average MFN applied tariff rate has increased, due partly to a rise in the average ad valorem equivalents of non-ad valorem duties. Also, Japan has adopted more international standards.
