Reforming agricultural trade among developing countries

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    It is commonly perceived that much of the initiative for removal of
    distortions in trade in agriculture has to come from the developed world. This
    generalization is not valid across all agricultural products, in particular for
    tropical products that are predominantly produced in developing countries and
    constitute a large share of their exports. It emerges that export of most of these
    products suffers not because of barriers in advanced countries, but from those
    in the developing world. This implies reciprocal benefits from growth in
    counter-trade if developing countries agree on more stringent trade liberalization
    measures for them. Cotton, sugar and bananas are important exceptions; they
    face trade barriers in some developed economies, so they deserve specific
    attention of trade negotiators.
