TOKYO -- Japan will streamline policy coordination among government agencies in a bid to expand food exports, according to sources.

Japanese exports of agricultural, forestry and fishery products and processed food are expected to hit 1 trillion yen ($9 billion) by 2020. The government wants to increase this to 5 trillion yen by 2030, from 906 billion yen in 2018.
