"A GAME-THEORETIC APPROACH TO AGRICULTURAL TRADE LIBERALIZATION STRATEGIES BETWEEN SSA & EU"
by Chikhuri, Krishna


Abstract
This paper explores the Strategic interactions between the SSA group of countries and the EU, by analysing
the impact of alternative agricultural trade liberalization scenarios by those two trading partners. The analysis is
made based on the model of the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP), and its related version 7.1. The Strategic
trade policies analysed are agricultural trade liberalization scenarios based on the negotiations underway by both the
EU & the ACP group under the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), the Doha Round of negotiations at the
WTO and on-going bilateral / plurilateral trade negotiations. Simulations are employed to study the possible strategies
of the two groups-EU & SSA-on the basis of game theory, and to search for mutually advantageous possibilities.
Results indicate that possible welfare loses by SSA in strategies examined and the possibility of inter-country
compensations would allow, at least in principle, to reach an agreement.
