Is TPP good for Japan?

A few years earlier, TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) becomes a current topic around the world, we can hear often about it on TV or newspapers. However, there are many difficult words, and time goes without our understanding. TPP was not global like now at first, only it worked for 4 countries. Hence, it is inevitable for the people in the other countries not to know details, so I searched websites and learned the merits and demerits of TPP. I will write my opinion about TPP.
I considered about the merits and the demerits of TPP. If my memories are right, there are a lot of terrible loan in Japan, and I know the loan doesn’t decrease so easily. Thereby Japan have to make more money. Not only the government and also the common people are not good affairs of money. TPP comes into Japan, customs duty will bring down, and so we can get foods or products lower prices than before. It is delightful situation for common people, on the other hand farmers and makers will not welcome that why foreign products are cheaper than Japanese products. Many of consumers will buy cheaper ones rather than pricey ones. It will give damage to Japanese agriculture and the other. Even if otherwise, the food self-sufficiency have become problem. Perhaps, it will be more serious.
I like Japanese foods because I can trust more than that of foreign countries. Many of Japanese people may think so. Therefore there is not big gap at the prices of products if TPP comes into Japan, and also the foreign people who love Japanese things must be there. That is why the output could grow. It is worth to bet the advantages for Japan. The government should try to change demerits to merits.
