Japan, U.S. Remain Apart in Working-Level Trade Talks

Japan, U.S. Remain Apart in Working-Level Trade Talks

   Washington, June 11 (Jiji Press)--Japan and the United States remained apart in working-level talks on a proposed bilateral trade pact that were held in Washington for two days through Tuesday.
   Officials from the two countries exchanged opinions on automotive tariffs and other contentious topics but were unable to bridge gaps, according to informed sources.
   The two sides will continue to work on sorting out the points for discussions, including through adjustments by chief negotiators, in the run-up to Thursday's ministerial talks.
   Since Japan and the United States entered into trade negotiations in April, it was the first time that working-level officials had discussions from technical perspectives.
   The participants, including bureau-chief-level officials from Japan's Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, checked the two countries' tariff rates and trade volumes for some 9,300 items of goods, to lay the groundwork for ministerial negotiations, the sources said.
