The Regulation of International Trade

The MIT Press

This chapter focuses on the Agreement on Agriculture, one of the two sector-specific agreements that remained outside the GATT which was reintroduced following the successful conclusion of the WTO. Farm goods were not subject to the GATT disciplines so this agreement was designed to integrate farm trade into the mainstream disciplines governing trade in goods. The chapter discusses the requirement for members to replace all forms of protection in place with tariff protections with the onset of the agreement. The chapter discusses the historic negotiations that have taken place since in order to liberalize the trade in farm goods as well as the use of border measures, domestic support, export subsidies, and minimum access requirements.

Keywords:   Agriculture, Border Measures, Domestic Support, Export Subsidies, Minimum Access Requirements
