Agricultural trade reform is a global issue. Countries are concerned both about reforms they may be required to implement and about the extent of liberalisation undertaken elsewhere. For OECD countries, the impacts of multilateral reform will depend increasingly on the provisions applied in emerging and transition economies (ETEs). Similarly, ETEs have a strong interest in the policies adopted by those OECD countries that dominate world agricultural trade. How can the diverse interests of ETEs and those of OECD be reconciled to produce a balanced multilateral trade agreement? Clearly trade liberalisation promises aggregate income gains. But what will be the country-specific effects -- and what will be the distributional consequences within countries? In OECD countries, support for agriculture has increased in response to lower world prices. What has been the response in Russia and in transition economies in line for EU accession? Similarly, what have been the key policy developments in other major agricultural economies-- Brazil, China, India, South Africa? How will agricultural trade liberalisation affect China's cereals and oilseeds markets, and what will it mean for the country's food security? These are some of the key issues addressed in this eighth edition of Agricultural Policies in Emerging and Transition Economies. AVAILABLE ON CD-ROM For the first time, major agricultural indicators for the 21 emerging and transition economies covered in this book are available on CD-ROM. This new database provides a unique collection of policy-relevant agricultural statistics for the period 1990-1999, as well as detailed support estimates for six transition economies for the period 1986-1999. It is in Beyond 20/20TM user-friendly software that enables you to export data, build graphs and tables and carry out your own analysis.
