  • About the Edition

    This paper assesses the effects of reducing tariffs under the Doha Round on market access for developing countries. It shows that for many developing countries, actual preferential access is less generous than it appears because of low product coverage or complex rules of origin. Thus lowering tariffs under the multilateral system is likely to lead to a net increase in market access for many developing countries, with gains in market access offsetting losses from preference erosion. Furthermore, comparing various tariff-cutting proposals, the research shows that the largest gains in market access are generated by higher tariff cuts in agriculture.

Here, the director of the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization and former President of Mexico Ernesto Zedillo argues that for the upcoming WTO meeting to succeed, all members should reaffirm their commitment to free trade principles, and especially the United States and European Union must exhibit more enlightened leadership. That depends on what kind of agreement the negotiators come up with. There has been a system failure.

Time to Sort Out the Long Overdue Doha Round

Negotiations have run into the ground, with no progress being made since December The European Union, for instance, persistently avoided negotiations on agriculture and only agreed to them after introducing a number of complex issues into the negotiating agenda--issues that developing countries remain highly skeptical of to this day.

Finally, developing countries choosing not to use the flexibilities would receive a coefficient of Countries can decide which services they want to allow. Who is doing the negotiating? Some trade sources have suggested, however, that recent Democratic victories in the US congressional and presidential elections may leave the US more room to manoeuvre on this issue, given that the cotton-producing states tend to favour heavily the Republicans.

Each round of multilateral trade talks over the last 70 years has taken longer than the one that preceded it, so the sluggish nature of the Doha round isn't unprecedented.

Sensitive products: a lurking iceberg? The pace of negotiations would then be set by the most willing participants. If the EU persists in its position, it could effectively kill the Doha Round.

This is the only basis to resolve the current crisis in the multilateral trading system and create a more secure and peaceful world. The first would eliminate export subsidies and significantly reduce tariffs and trade-distorting domestic support measures over a five-year period.

By leaving its Common Agricultural Policy essentially untouched, the EU's proposal delivers little in terms of additional market access and practically nothing in the phasing out of export subsidies.

The resistance has mainly come from the EU, but also from subsidized farm interests in the US, as well as smaller industrial countries.

The article observes that the nearly decade long negotiational stalemate is symptomatic of. As reductions in most-favored-nation tariffs in industrial countries will inevitably lead to preference erosion, African countries need to ensure that the Doha Round leads to liberalization in all sectors by all World Trade Organization (WTO) members, so that the resulting gains will offset any losses.

Time to Sort Out the Long Overdue Doha Round Expanding trade has enriched the world, and completing the Doha Round of negotiations could deliver nations – both rich and poor – from stagnation.

The round of World Trade Organization negotiations began in. The current round of multilateral trade negotiations—the Doha Round—presents an opportunity for countries to reap the benefits of trade liberalization.

The Doha Round is intended to advance the interests of developing countries but it has run into problems because additional liberalization in sectors of interest to some developing countries could.
