The World Poultry Market--Government Intervention and Multilateral Policy Reform

Trade liberalization by countries with industrial market economies would probably increase world trade in poultry meat products and decrease consumer prices in many countries. Thus, countries with efficient producers--such as the United States, Thailand, and Brazil--and consumers in countries with considerable protection--such as Japan, Canada, and the member countries of the European Community--would benefit the most from liberalized trade. Poultry is the fastest growing source of meat, representing about 22 percent of all meat production in 1988. The countries with industrial market economies accounted for about 54 percent of total world poultry production and 59 percent of world exports in 1988.
