The Uruguay Round Agreement on Agriculture: A New World Order for Agricultural Trade?

Agriculture has been successfully brought back into the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. In this review, which is intended to draw heavily on a set of unpublished conference papers, a brief history of the issues, the proposals and the outcomes for agriculture are presented. The possible implications for the agricultural sectors of the Australian and New Zealand economies are discussed. The formation of regional trading arrangements and their place in a multilateral trading environment is analysed. Agricultural trade and environmental issues are discussed within the context of the Sanitary and Phytosanitary Agreement. Finally, some items for the future agenda are presented.
