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
