"WTO agricultural negotiations: A comparison of recent proposals for market access "
by Brockmeier, Martina, Rainer Klepper and Janine Pelikan


Abstract
This book chapter investigates the effects of possible WTO negotiation
outcomes on the EU and third countries. An extended version of the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) model is used to first project a base run that includes Agenda 2000, the EU’s enlargement, the Everything but Arms agreement and the mid-term review of the CAP. The policy simulation also includes the WTO negotiations. For this latter aspect, the simulations differentiate among four proposals that have been submitted by the EU, the US, the G-10 and the G-20 in advance of the WTO’s Ministerial Conference in Hong Kong in October 2005. An adequate tariff-line representation is provided, which takes applied and bound rates into account. The authors conclude that highly protected sectors would experience severe negative changes to their trade balances as a result of all four proposals, but particularly under the application of the US proposal. It is also evident that the highly protected beef and milk sectors of the EU would be especially
affected.
