Market Access Matters

The Aus­tralian Nation­al Farm­ers’ Fed­er­a­tion has released a pam­phlet enti­tled ‘Mar­ket Access Mat­ters’ that I wrote on their behalf. It sum­ma­rizes a num­ber of argu­ments for devel­op­ing coun­tries to sup­port an ambi­tious agree­ment to lib­er­al­ize mar­kets for agri­cul­tur­al prod­ucts. You can down­load a copy of the pam­phlet “here(link to pdf file)”:http://www.rirdc.gov.au/reports/GLC/04–110.pdf bq. Launch­ing the report: “Why Mar­ket Access Reforms Mat­ter”, com­mis­sioned by the Rur­al Indus­tries Research and Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (RIRDC), NFF Pres­i­dent, Mr Peter Cor­ish said the research demon­strat­ed why mar­ket access was so impor­tant to the cur­rent Doha Round of WTO nego­ti­a­tions. The report out­lines why mar­ket access reforms deliv­er the biggest impact from trade lib­er­al­i­sa­tion and why tar­iff cuts are need­ed in devel­op­ing and not just devel­oped coun­try mar­kets,” Mr Cor­ish said.
