US MEAT EXPORT FEDERATION PRESIDENT SENG SAMPLE BEEF IN TOKYO.
U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) President Philip Seng samples a
piece of beef at a news conference in Tokyo March 7, 2003. Seng said on
Friday that Japanese imports of U.S. beef are on track to rise 30
percent in 2003, nearing levels before mad cow disease in Japan gutted
demand - but only if Tokyo waives a looming hike in beef tariffs.
