Handbook of Trade Policy for Development

Tim Josling

Oxford University Press

Tim Josling explores how market access, export competition, domestic support, and health and safety regulations affect world agricultural trade. These policies distort world markets for agricultural goods and are particularly detrimental to the interests of many developing countries. Josling examines the Doha negotiations on agricultural trade highlighting the major issues and the likely impact of the envisaged new modalities on both developed and developing countries. Although the welfare gains from liberalization are substantial, an important motivation behind the Doha Round may be the desire to lock in autonomous policy changes undertaken for domestic political or economic reasons. Agricultural trade policies are remarkably complex. Tariff levels on agricultural goods, for instance, vary markedly not only across countries, but also within countries by sector and even by specific good. The convoluted nature of many agricultural trade policy measures also means that the domestic benefits and costs of liberalization are difficult to estimate.

Keywords:   Agricultural trade, market access, domestic support, health regulations, safety regulations, Doha Round, developing countries, developed countries, liberalization, welfare gains
