Distribution of duties on agricultural exports

On aver­age, about 60% of the agri­cul­tur­al exports of devel­op­ing coun­tries go to indus­tri­al­ized coun­tries. But indus­tri­al­ized coun­tries are col­lect­ing a small­er pro­por­tion of duties on the agri­cul­tur­al exports of devel­op­ing coun­tries. This is due in part to the low­er aver­age applied tar­iffs on agri­cul­ture in indus­tri­al­ized coun­tries: of course, this aver­age “smooths out” the impact of a num­ber of very high peak tar­iff rates. This table of data from the World Bank shows where the duties on the agri­cul­tur­al exports of devel­op­ing coun­tries are paid. Most of the duties paid to oth­er devel­op­ing coun­tries are paid in mar­kets in the same region as the export­ing coun­try. For exam­ple, about a third of the duties paid on agri­cul­tur­al exports from East Asian coun­tries are col­lect­ed in the oth­er devel­op­ing economies of the region. table of duites collected on the agricultural exports of developing countries
