HIA is investigating how to increase vegetable exports to Japan over the next two years. With the recent changes due to Japan - Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA) a number of new vegetables have been granted access. Ben Perry has been appointed onto the project's steering committee and Lucy Purcell onto the Project Committee.
We met up with the project's reference committee made up of growers and other trade experts in Toowoomba to kick start the project. Looking forward to the results that come from this over the next 18 months.
