Liberalizing access barriers to non-agricultural products

On 10 June, I gave a pre­sen­ta­tion at the ESCAP Region­al Senior Offi­cials Meet­ing on prepa­ra­tions for the Can­cún WTO Min­is­te­r­i­al meet­ing. The slides show the impact of trade bar­ri­ers on devel­op­ing coun­try trade in indus­tri­al and min­er­als prod­ucts with spe­cial ref­er­ence to the effect of bar­ri­ers in oth­er devel­op­ing coun­tries (which tend to be high­er than those in devel­oped coun­try mar­kets). The pre­sen­ta­tion also looks at the val­ue of uni­at­er­al-pref­er­ences (‘GSP&#8217)and the impact of lib­er­al­iza­tion on fis­cal poli­cies in devel­op­ing coun­tries. The pre­sen­ta­tion I gave is avail­able for view­ing in PDF for­mat and for down­load (400kb) here
