The United States has agreed to require further training of American workers handling beef exports to Japan, U.S. agriculture officials said Wednesday.
The U.S. delegation, led by Chuck Lambert, undersecretary for marketing and regulatory programs, finished two-days of talks in Japan in hopes of lifting Tokyo’s ban on U.S. beef.
Lambert told reporters that the U.S. would provide additional training to beef workers and follow-up to make sure they know what meat products are prohibited in Japan and which are allowed.
