The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has launched its own official ‘YouTube’ and ‘Yahoo! Japan’ channels.

As for providing information via the Internet, in addition to the conventional Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries website (Japanese), official channels on 'YouTube' and 'Yahoo! Japan' have been launched to expeditiously disseminate realistic policy information mainly by videos.

 

Objective

We have been delivering videos through the ‘Internet TV of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (Japanese)' within the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries website (Japanese). Due to collaborations with YouTube and Yahoo! Japan, our new channels have been launched on those private sector websites with many users that include video delivery functions with the aim of disseminating prompt and accurate information generally to the public.
