The recently signed US-Japan trade deal would boost Japan’s gross domestic product (GDP) by about 8% and create about 280,000 jobs In Japan, the Japanese  government said on Friday.  

The two countries signed a deal last week under which  Japan will open its market for agricultural products such as beef and pork and the US  will remove or reduce its tariffs on imports of Japanese industrial goods such as machinery, according to the Japan Times.  The two countries are seeking to put the trade pact into force on Jan. 1.
