Agricultural policy, the GATT and developing countries

, : Agricultural policy, the GATT and developing countries. Discussion Paper, Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics ( 89.1): 25pp.

As part of a programme of international trade research conducted at the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics, the study was undertaken in response to an invitation to participate in the Ford Foundation study 'Trade policy and the developing world'. Although prices of a number of agricultural commodities have recovered since 1987, the difficulties in world agricultural trade associated with high levels of support, particularly in major developed countries, are far from over.
