Protective Regimes and Trade Reform

Protective Regimes and Trade Reform

(p.301) Chapter 10 Protective Regimes and Trade Reform
Handbook of Trade Policy for Development

Wendy E. Takacs

Wendy Takacs analyses protective trade regimes and their reform. Governments implement a variety of overlapping and often contradictory trade-related measures to promote particular industrial sectors. Takacs examines some of the most commonly used instruments: export controls on raw material inputs, domestic content requirements, barriers to imports, and compensatory export requirements. These measures alter the effective rate of protection for different sectors and thereby influence the allocation of national resources and economic benefits. She illustrates the consequences of export controls through a case study of raw cashmere in Mongolia and the effects of domestic content requirements and compensatory export restrictions in conjunction with import barriers for final goods in the Philippine automobile industry. Understanding how the various components of a complicated protective regime interact is critical for designing a successful reform program otherwise it may lead to unintentional increases or reductions in the effective rate of protection for particular activities.
